TCM, 1:00 p.m. ET

 
Today’s TCM all-day film salute is devoted to Greta Garbo – and pays almost as much attention to her silent movies as to her later ones from the sound era. This very fictionalized biographical drama, from 1931, is one of Garbo’s first talkies, and certainly one of her most notorious, if only for the costumes she wore in this absurd but entertaining account of the infamous WWI femme fatale spy. Lionel Barrymore co-stars.
