STREETS OF SORROW (aka "THE STREET OF SORROWS" or
Starring Greta Garbo
MOTION PICTURE MAGAZINE
This is a German film, starring Greta Garbo, and it is not
nearly so good as many of the foreign films shown in this country
in the past, many of the reviewers say. Quinn Martin, the World's
critic, says that the picture "is the least meritorious German
picture play which I have seen this year . . ." The American's
critic points out that Miss Garbo should appreciate the lighting
systems in American studios, for "she is not the alluring
lady in this old film that she is in "Flesh and the Devil"
nor nearly so good an actress." The piece, directed by G.W.
Pabst, is melodrama of post-war intrigue in Vienna.
