Seductively mysterious, the exotic dancer MATA HARI pays the ultimate
price for being the most famous spy of World War One.
Coming only fourteen years after the execution of its title character,
here is a densely plotted film given the full MGM gloss & glamour.
Production values are excellent, even if the script strays a bit too
much into fiction to tell its story.
Languid & languorous, Greta Garbo slinks across the screen like a large
cat, almost purring her dialogue rather than speaking it. Utterly
fascinating, it is easy to see why she dominated her generation & why
her legend still endures. Finally coming fully alive during a
penultimate murder scene, Garbo exhibits the frenetic energy of which
she was capable on screen. Fortunately, she is only required to dance
once, leaving to the imagination the full impact of Mata Hari's
original private performances.
Ramon Novarro, who receives co-equal billing with Garbo, had been an
important movie celebrity far longer than she, but her rising sun
tended to obscure most other stars in her orbit and Novarro has to work
hard to get much notice in their joint scenes .As always, MGM's
chameleon actor (this time he plays a Russian) gives a very competent
performance, but as a romantic pair they make a rather unusual couple -
which simply means that Novarro's sexual ambiguity is perfectly
mirrored by Garbo's intrinsic androgyny.
Lewis Stone is quite effective as a sinister German spymaster. C. Henry
Gordon gives some nice moments as a tough French policeman. Lionel
Barrymore is also on hand, flamboyantly overacting as a Russian general
who delivers military secrets to Mata Hari in exchange for her favours;
he apparently decided Garbo wasn't going to steal the entire picture
and he puts up an outrageous display of ham acting.
Karen Morley & Frank Reicher appear as German agents who learn the
price of becoming no longer useful to Berlin; movie mavens will
recognize an uncredited Mischa Auer in the opening scene as an
unfortunate victim of Mata's wiles.
Born to a prosperous hatter in The Netherlands on August 7, 1876,
Margeretha Geertruida Zelle was convent schooled and later attended a
teacher's college. In 1895 she married British-born Campbell MacLeod, a
captain in the Dutch colonial army and lived with him in Java & Sumatra
from 1897 until 1902.
After their divorce, Margeretha settled in Paris, where she changed her
name to the Malay 'Mata Hari,' which means 'eye of the day.'
Fabricating a mystique of exotic mysticism, the beautiful Mata
supported herself quite nicely as a courtesan and erotic dancer, giving
special performances around Europe to delighted clientele. Several
military officers of various nations counted themselves among her
The details of Mata's involvement in espionage still remain rather
vague. It's possible she entered the German Secret Service as early as
1907, but she later is thought to have worked for the French Secret
Service, as well. As a citizen of neutral Holland, she was still able
to travel freely after the commencement of the War and it is alleged
that she garnered secrets from Allied officers for her German
employers. It was the British who tipped off the French as to Mata's
supposed activities while in Belgium, and she was arrested upon her
return to France.
At the court martial trial, she could only be found guilty of giving
outdated information to the Germans, which she claimed was entirely
innocent. However, it was more than enough to imprison her for three
months, before her final rendezvous with a firing squad on October 15,
