Two faced woman (George Cukor, 1941)
Who's in it: Greta Garbo + Melvyn Douglas + Constance Bennett
What's it about: An important magazine editor (Douglas) marries a free-spirited ski instructor (Garbo), but she's afraid to lose him so she creates a twin sister to bring him back...will that help?
The good: I liked this movie very much, even when I've read some negative comments about Garbo's last movie; she and Douglas had a marvelous chemistry on screen and simply because of that it's worth watching; Garbo is really funny in this movie, my gosh, loved the dance scene and this quote:
Dancer: [about the dance Garbo just invented] What is it?
Garbo: Well, it's a sort of combination.
Dancer: Of what? The rumba and the conga?
Garbo: (thinking) No... it's the Chiqui and the Choca.
Dancer: What do they call it?
Garbo: Uuh, la Chiqui Choca.
The bad: At the beginning Douglas' character changed his mind like every two seconds and that was kind of unbelievable and tiring; his relationship with Bennet's character wasn't very clear; the end could be better.
Should I see it?: It isn't as good as "Ninotchka" and maybe the plot isn't very memorable, but it's a light and funny comedy worth watching .
