Mata Hari (1931)
March 2017: Imposter!

Friday, March 3, 2017 - 6:00pm

Directed by George Fitzmaurice
Greta Garbo, Ramon Novarro

The tale of Mata Hari, the notoriously conspicuous spy of World War I, was perfect for Garbo, offering mystery, romance, and fantastic costumes. Silent era heartthrob Ramon Novarro (who was Ben Hur long before Charlton Heston) plays the intrepid young Russian aviator who captures her heart. Sadly, as the ice-blooded spymaster played by Lewis Stone puts it, "A spy in love is a tool that has outlived its usefulness." Bring a hanky. Bring two.
