And now, on with the show!!
Queen Christina (1934) Starts: 5:40 PM, Ends: ~7:20 PM
Starring: Greta Garbo, John Gilbert
Director: Rouben Mamoulian
Plot: Queen Christina of Sweden falls in love with a Spanish envoy, but will she choose love or her country? One of Garbo's greatest performances -- this is star power charisma at work! A pre-Code classic, Garbo was never more alluring, or sexually ambiguous (is she, or isn't she...??). The movie climaxes in one of the greatest, most perfectly enigmatic shots in the history of Hollywood.
