Oh dear. Here is a difficult spot to be in. I’m just finishing reading Anna Karenina by Tolstoy (as you see I wasn’t joking about the Russian obsession) and I cannot for the life of me choose which of the two major classic film versions of this novel to watch first. It makes a difference you know. One always compares the first to the second and I want to see the best version right after reading the book. I mean, it’s not as if we’re comparing light weight actresses here. We’re talking about Greta Garbo and Vivien Leigh in the ring! This may be even more difficult than Anna’s choice between Vronsky and Alexei! Who would your money be on? Can you help me to choose?
