Agreeing (again) with Gary, this 1938 movie is well worth a watch in many dimensions: acting/staging/dance scenes. etc.

There are many versions of "Anna Karenina" but none better than Director Clarence Brown's version from 1938. The movie stars Greta Garbo and Fredric March. What stands out is the beauty and acting ability of Greta Garbo. She is spellbinding when ever she is in a scene. We have one of Hollywood's biggest stars in what might be considered her finest role. I regret so many adaptations of this great book were not up to par. Don't think either the age of the film will affect your viewing pleasure. It has all the royal palaces and big dance scenes in wonderful ballrooms in great black and white. Thanks for reading the above. Leave a note here on the KCLS with your reaction to the movie.

this version of the story is the best. the 1961 BBC version is good. the 2012 version was horrible. Fred March is miscast as Vronsky. Sean Connery played him in 1961 and was good. an effeminate dandy did a terrible job in 2012. I guess Clark Gable was not available to play Vronsky in 1935. Garbo did a nice job in this one, better than Clair Bloom or Kiera Knightley.
