Here’s the set up: Ninotchka commenting on western decadence – (looking at a ladies’ hat in a display window) How can such a civilization survive which permits their women to put things like that on their heads? It won’t be long now comrades.
And then she meets Melvyn Douglas and the rest is romantic comedy history…
Garbo’s hat was designed by the famed costume designer, Adrian.
Directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Written by Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder, and Walter Reisch.
