A Woman of Affairs

MGM paid a whopping $50,000 for the rights to Michael Arlen's hot best-seller, The Green Hat, only to have the censors object to everything from the plotline (which touched on syphilis) to the title, even down to using the characters' names. Greta Garbo plays the tragic heroine, racing around in her Hispano-Suiza in a desperate attempt to forget her feckless husband (John Mack Brown) and her married lover (John Gilbert). Under Clarence Brown's dry direction, the film isn't much, though Garbo has an unforgettable scene in a hospital room in which she receives a vase full of flowers as if they were her lover in the flesh. With Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Lewis Stone (1928).
