Description by OLDIES.com:
As an Italian opera diva, Greta Garbo is luminous, haunting, desirable, mysterious and transcendentally lovely. No wonder she personifies romance for both an aging millionaire (Lewis Stone) and a boyish rector (Gavin Gordon) caught in the tortured throes of a forbidden love. Garbo followed up her smash talkie debut Anna Christie with this tale of a woman whose tender relationship with the younger clergyman is crushed by her remorse over her illicit affair with the wealthy rou?. Suffused with glamour and ardent emotion, Romance earned a Best Actress Academy Award nomination for Garbo and a Best Director nod for Clarence Brown, who guided his leading lady in several classic pictures, including Anna Christie and Anna Karenina.
A young man of the cloth falls for a famous European soprano is this romantic melodrama set in early New York. Told in a series of flashbacks, ROMANCE stars Gavin Gordon as aging bishop Thomas Armstrong, who remembers his passionate and ill-fated romance with the luminous diva Madame Rita Cavallini (Greta Garbo) when his young grandson admits his desire for a young actress. Thomas, a well-born bishop-to-be, is instantly smitten with the luminous diva (Greta Garbo) when she appears at his uncle's mansion for a ball. Ignoring the whispers of her scandalous reputation, Armstrong enters into an idyllic romance with the opera singer--despite his family's disapproval. Their plans for marriage are shaken, however, when Armstrong discovers that his uncle (Lewis Stone) is Cavallini's ex-lover. Based on the play SIGNORA CACILINI by Edward Sheldon, this sentimental romance features a glamourous performance from the great Greta Garbo as the passionate diva.
Diva Madame Cavallini tries to hide her worldly past now that she is in love with a devote young clergyman. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best Director, Best Actress--Greta Garbo.
