Event Details

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas


This time, Lubitsch takes us to Paris, where the city’s charm seduces the most hardened Soviet ideologue. After three Russians visit the City of Lights to sell off confiscated jewelry, their reluctance to return home prompts a visit from the stern Nina Ivanovna Yakushova. Greta Garbo’s cheekbones alone makes this rigid Stalinist so glacial one imagines ice mantling her shoulders, and it’s a pleasure to watch her melt into “Ninotchka” under the seductions of both Paris and Melvyn Douglas’ Count Leon d'Algout. Ninotchka received four Academy nominations: Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Original Story, and Best Screenplay.

Organizer

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
