Camille by George Cukor( Visual )

This lush production is true to Henry James's description of the mid-19th century melodrama as 'all champagne and tears'.

Queen Christina by Rouben Mamoulian( Visual )

9 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Garbo, in the role of the 17th century Swedish queen who gives up her throne for her lover, moves through various stages of sexual ambiguity. She plays a sexual identity game fully comparable with that of Dietrich in Morocco and Blonde Venus and Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlett. In the words of critic Charles Affron 'she hovers in that area between male and female, leaning into her identity as a woman but not abandoning the richness of her compound identity'. Mamoulian described the extraordinary 'memorising of the room' scene following a night of love as 'a sonnet ... sheer poetry and feeling ... with movement like a dance.'

Life has a lot to give them, but there are prices for fame and fortune-- addictions to pills, booze, drowned careers, crumbling fortunes, dizzying highs and incredible lows.
