Flesh and the Devil (USA, 1927) by Clarence Brown, starring Greta Garbo and John Gilbert. (116 minutes)
Flesh and the Devil, by Clarence Brown, was the North-American film that made Greta Garbo “divine”. She played a femme fatale, a devastating vamp capable of ruining male loyalties, although her eroticism was very elegant. Her co-star was John Gilbert and in two famous scenes she reinvented the techique of kissing on camera.
