Day 6’s Double Dip - Rouben Mamoulian's Queen Christina + The Song of Songs
Queen Christina - where Garbo is queen!!! of Sweden!!!!  AND SHE RULES!!!!!!  but she’s sooooo alone, and doesn’t want to be, and then meets John Gilbert, and then wants to be alone with him, but her subjects won’t leave her alone about it!!!!!!!!!  This was Gilbert’s penultimate film :(  DO NOT make this the penultimate 1933 movie that you ever see!!!
The Song of Songs is sung by wet behind the ears orphan Marlene Dietrich.  After her pop croaks, she heads for the big city where lecherous men can’t keep away from this virginal angel!  First she paws for puppy-love with sculptor Brian Aherne, and then succumbs to pitbull ‘love’ with wicked baron Lionel Atwill, who wants to sculpt her into a boring baroness.  Heartbreak ensues, and Dietrich sings, and the right love wins in the end!
oh 1933, you’re the best.  why did you have to turn into 1934?  why is it 2013?  BOO 2013!!!
