Queen Christina

Rouben Mamoulian's costume romance about the tragic love of the 17th-century Swedish Queen (Greta Garbo) for Spanish envoy John Gilbert. The final scene on the prow of the ship taking Christina into exile, in which the camera dollies into a huge close-up of Garbo's face, is among the most famous last shots in movie history.
