SUSAN LENOX aka Susan Lenox (Her Fall and Rise) d. Robert Z. Leonard, 1931 presented by Women & Cocaine at The Cinema Museum (19 FEB 19:30):

“Join us as we immerse you in the pre code era and celebrate the Divine Garbo, a woman who’s portrayal of love and sacrifice makes every other human emotion or endeavour seem trivial.”

“We will be showing her rarely screened pre code classic Susan Lenox (Her Fall and Rise), her only film with Clark Gable. It was banned upon its release by the British censors and had to be heavily cut. Garbo plays Susan, a young girl who escapes her tyrant uncle and an arranged marriage to find a new life for herself. Instead she falls in love with a kind stranger but circumstances force her to become a woman of easy virtue.” (Women & Cocaine).
