Watch A Woman of Affairs - Alternative Versions.
This is Garbo's best silent film and it contains her finest silent
performance. This is class A film making- the cinematography is
exceptionally good; the cast all act splendidly; and the script,
adapted by Bess Merydith from the Arlen play, THE GREEN HAT, was
deservedly nominated for an Oscar - the only Oscar nomination a Garbo
silent would receive.
This is silent film making at its zenith - the composition and camera
movement make for no less than two dozen memorable shots. There are
over the shoulder framings of characters (Bosworth and Gilbert, Murder
Investigator and Garbo), combinations of character framings within
objects close to the camera (Gilbert's entrance into Garbo's hospital
room, framed in a semi-circle on the left by Lewis Stone, the bouquet
Gilbert sent, and Garbo resting at bottom of frame; Fairbanks twice
shot from below with alcohol paraphernalia close to camera; Mack
Brown's reaction to close-up handcuffs), rapid dolly ins and outs to
bring attention to characters (most memorably from the door of
Fairbanks sick room to his emaciated close up form in a chair and the
famous Garbo walk to her bouquet of flowers, which she embraces as if
they were her lover. Much use of soft focus throughout.
Gilbert and Stone give two of their best performances. Sebastian is
excellent as the suffering wife and Fairbanks is outstanding in his
seven sequence supporting role, almost stealing the film away from
Garbo. She is at her luminous best with amazing control of gesture and
facial expression - quite (for me) the finest of all her silent
performances. Sadly the 1990 MGM/UA Turner VHS is out of print. I hope
her select silents wind up on a multi-disc DVD one day soon. Hopefully,
minus the overblown and unremarkable full orchestral score created by
Thames Television for this release.
See this one for MGM and Garbo at their silent peak. All students of
cinematography, pay attention.
