Otto Bruno and Robert Bellissimo join Mike to look at Ernst Lubitsch's 1939 film, Ninotchka. Written by Charles Brackett, , Walter Reisch, and based loosely on a story by Melchior Lengyel, the film stars Greta Garbo as the titular Ninotchka, a stern Soviet sent to Paris to supervise the sale of jewels seized from a Russian noblewoman, Grand Duchess Swana (Ina Claire).
