Watch Ninotchka at the Film Forum

Ninotchka is a great and funny classic film starring Greta Garbo as a Soviet komissar. It's also solidly anti-Communist. Unable to take the joke, the former Soviet Union banned Ninotchka.

As if the chance to see a classic anti-Communist movie on the big screen weren't enough (and really, how often do you get that  opportunity?), here are some other reasons to watch Ninotchka:

1. One of classic Hollywood's biggest stars, Greta Garbo became famous for playing beautiful, enigmatic women in serious dramas. Ninotchka is a departure from the kind of roles Garbo was known for, and it is her funniest and finest performance.

2. Ninotchka was directed by Ernst Lubitsch, one of classic Hollywood's greatest comedic directors.

3. Ninotchka boasts a witty, clever screenplay by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder. Brackett and Wilder were responsible for a lot of great screenplays (e.g., Sunset Boulevard), and Wilder went on to become one of America's most accomplished directors (e.g., the aforementioned Sunset Boulevard, Double Indemnity, The Apartment, Stalag 17, The Lost Weekend).
