    It’s a highly contagious airborne disease spread by coughing and sneezing. Just count all of the times in the movie when she sneezes on her boyfriends.

    There were a lot of plot points similar to "Moulin Rouge!" I thought. The courtesan mistaking the young handsome man for the wealthy Baron. Having to hide their relationship. The fact that she is dying, and of Tuberculosis. She dies in his arms And of course Armand throwing the money at her and saying he has paid her for her services.

    I wonder if this is a coincedence, or if Baz Luhrman based MR! on some of this. At some point, I thought it’d be funny if they broke into "Come What May."

    Does anyone know what book it is that Armand bought for Camille, in a remarkable bit of foreshadowing, the sad one about the pleasure seeking beautiful woman who dies young? I saw Camille recently on AMC but couldn’t hear the book’s title.

    They were gorgeous, but I have one question: what the hell kept them up?

    It’s obvious that Garbo was not generously endowed, and one gown in particular (the one she wore to the gaming club) looked like it was slipping off while Marguerite was coughing. I’ll bet Garbo deliberately turned her back to the camera during this scene in order that a wardrobe malfunction would not be caught on film.

    Somehow, I wonder how this film got past the Hays Office.

    what an a-hole. now i admit that i sometimes get a bit too into the movies i’m watching, but i was yelling at my tv. how does he know what will make his son happy? it’s obvious what will, and he’s taking that away from him!

    but ya’ll probably already know that. i just wanted to rant about it.

    I know, there are only 12 notes in Western music, and some music is bound to remind a person of other music. And I know that older pieces are quoted purposefully and very nicely in the score for this film, especially Invitation to the Dance (after it’s played by Marguerite and the Count, it crops up in the background music often). And I think that much of the score for this film is subtle and lovely.

    But, I think Herbert Stothart was under the influence of Eddie Cantor when he wrote one bit of music for this film. The first 12 notes, rhythm and all, are virtually identical to the beginning of "Makin’ Whoopee."

    I’m afraid it broke the mood for me every time it came up.

    It’s especially hard to ignore when it’s heard right before a scene at a wedding: "Another bride, another groom . . . " :-)

    It must have been even more distracting to audiences in 1936 than it was to me.

    This is my favourite performance of all time by an actress on the screen. Garbo is enchanting, superb, amazing! She is my favourite actress.

    If so, does anyone remember roughly when it was on (even if it was more than once) and what channel it was on?

    …that Marguerite made the promise to leave him to his father, when they ‘reconcile’ in the end? I don’t remember any indication that he realizes she’s made that sacrifice for him for his father’s sake. Anybody care to enlighten me?

    Thank god for TCM! This movie was, in short, amazing. This was the first Greta Garbo movie I ever saw, too…she was perfect for the role. All of the cast was perfect, really…it made me cry at the end. For some reason, too, I loved the part when Baron and Marguerite were at the piano and the doorbell rang…the camera zooming around them as they laughed was just…perfect!

    If the main character is Margarite why is the movie called Camille? I haven’t seen it so maybe it is clear in the film.

    The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be love loved in return (Moulin Rouge!)

    Laura Hope Crews as Prudence is a valued scene stealer in the movie "Camille". She most certainly should have been Oscar nominated for Best Supporting Actress. In other films (most notably the best movie ever made- Gone With The Wind) she has always been a sensational "character actress" but in "Camille" her performance is fluid and her character even unexpectedly turns ugly at the end. She has NO Bio on IMDB. That is pretty sorry… seeing as though she was a famous stage actress in her day… as well as made countless appearances in big name films….. For what its worth I had to say this, incase it never has been said before…. now it has.

    What does that mean exactly?

    In Moulin Rouge that has a meaning of prostitute

    In other works it is a companion that has sexual understandings with someone not necessarily a prostitute

    In other situation it is just a person that attends the court of a King

    What is the meaning behind this one movie in particular?

    How did she get her money?

    "Music comes from within, from your heart and from your soul."

    The similarities are the love scenes, Armand’s humiliation of Margherite, the intervention of the father and Margherite’s death. Reminds me hugely of La traviata, as the story is very similar. I love Camille, it is beautiful, and Greta Garbo was the movie.

    A lot of the events – as well as the themes – in Camille are similar to those in Moulin Rouge!.

    Maturity. The very staple of the IMDb message boards.

    I could have sworn before I saw this that she dies *in* Armand’s arms, (in Annie the lady watching it is watching some death scene with her in his arms i was told) but I remember him just being near her….can anyone help me out?

    I can’t imagine anyone else in the role of Marguerite. This has to be Garbo’s best film. She always felt she gave her best performance in this and I would have to agree with her.

    With the imminent and very welcome release of CAMILLE on DVD, I had hoped that a trawl of the MGM vaults would have yielded the 2 slightly different versions of the final scene, shot by George Cukor, and also the new beginning ordered by Louis B Mayer after Irving Thalberg’s death, but subsequently dropped in favour of the original.

    The alternate endings were shot using different angles and I recall seeing one of these in a print shown at the NFT in London in 1967. The new beginning was never released.

    Lastly, I had also hoped that the rare colour screeen test of Garbo made early in 1936 for Camille (which was originally planned in colour) might have turned up too, together with the colour footage of the opera house sequence.

    Alas, it seems these treasures have not survived after all.

    Unless anyone here knows anything to the contrary…

    i saw this movie today, and i must say it is the most boring movie i have ever seen, except for maybe Lord of the Rings. the only interesting character was the baron, and he was supposed to be the bad guy. i really gave this movie and chance, and i enjoy lionell barrymore, but i couldnt even make it all the way through. after about an hour, i was checking my watch ever 10 minutes to see if it was over. i struggle to see how this movie has such a high rating. while i wasnt overly impressed by Garbo’s preformance, i think her oscar nomination was worthy. the only thing i was asking myself through the whole movie was "how can a movie by the same man who wrote The Count of Monte Cristo, one of the most exciting stories ever, be so boring?"
