Woman of Affaires, A
(A Woman of Affaires)
USA
1928
Drama

A WOMAN OF AFFAIRS features Greta Garbo and John Gilbert in one of their most sizzling partnerships. Under normal circumstances, the screenplay would not have got past the censors. A beautiful and passionate lady is forbidden to marry the aristocratic man she loves. The man she does marry commits suicide on their wedding night as the police close in. Her brother dies from alcohol abuse. When she realises that all is lost, she too takes her life, driving her car at high speed into the tree where she and the aristocrat first vowed her love. 

"Greta Garbo had something unique on the screen that nobody else had, nobody." (Clarence Brown)

Carl Davis’s Lisztian romantic chamber score composed in 1984 brilliantly underpins the tragic action.
