Watch Comrade X - Alternative Versions.
With the success MGM had with Ninotchka another lampooning of the
Soviet Union seemed a natural. So the following year while the
Hitler-Stalin pact was still active, MGM came up with Comrade X.
Comrade X is a pseudonym for some journalist who is sending uncensored
stories out about the real Soviet Union. It happens to be Clark Gable
and the whole Soviet secret police apparatus is after him.
But a valet at a hotel where the foreign correspondents stay played by
Felix Bressart comes upon his secret. He offers a deal to Gable, he
won't turn him in if Gable convinces Bressart's daughter Hedy Lamarr to
leave the Soviet Union with him and come to America.
Easier said than done because Lamarr is as committed a Communist as
Greta Garbo was in Ninotchka. So like Melvyn Douglas in Ninotchka,
Gable's got his work cut out for him.
Comrade X's humor is a little more broad than Ninotchka's was. It even
got a few good knocks in on Nazi Germany with Sig Ruman playing a
German correspondent. The humor about the Soviets concerns what a
dangerous thing it was to rise in the ranks of the party. Remember this
was also the time of Stalin purging all kinds of people out of the
party. Something that didn't stop until Hitler broke the non-aggression
pact in 1941.
And Hedy Lamarr is sure no Garbo, but she acquits herself nicely in the
role of the fuzzy headed idealist.
Gable, Lamarr, and Bressart get caught up in the internal politics of
the Soviet Union and have to flee the country. What happens to them is
the balance of the film and it is hilarious.
One of the best films done by both of the stars. Grand comedy.
