Two-Faced Woman

Time Out says

Garbo's last film, graced by some charming scenes and directed with Cukor's usual flair, but hardly sending her off in a blaze of glory. A sophisticated comedy, it has Garbo vamping it up as her imaginary twin sister in order to re-seduce the wandering attention of her husband (Douglas). The Garbo persona is really too dreamy for this sort of flightiness, and although she amiably parodies her own image, she tends to be upstaged by Constance Bennett as the other woman. The script, in any case, is something of a disaster area, not least because the film was denounced by the Legion of Decency, hurriedly withdrawn, and partially redubbed into a blandness that sometimes becomes meaningless.
