picture of the day: modern love in 1929

Greta Garbo and Nils Asther 
a publicity still from The Single Standard, 1929

This is one of my favourite Nils Asther films. 
His character is an idiot, but the direction is skilful, Garbo is radiant,
and the themes are surprisingly fresh and modern even though it's a silent movie.

I'm going to write a review soon.
