Rent Ninotchka on DVD


1939 Rated NR 1hr 50m

In her penultimate screen role, Greta Garbo earned her fourth and final Oscar nomination for portraying Communist dream Ninotchka: a stern-faced apparatchik who does things entirely by the book -- the Soviet book. She's sent to Paris to arrange the sale of Grand Duchess Swana's jewels for her government, but while taking in the appalling materialism of Paris, Ninotchka meets the Swana estate's Count Leon (Melvyn Douglas), who melts her icy heart.
