Basil Rathbone and Fredric March end up being the two forces which prevent Anna Karenina from being a great film.
Rathbone's peformance is too sympathetic for a character who is supposedly the film's villain, ulimtley making Garbo the true villain of the movie. Fredric March's performance on the other hand is shockingly serviceable at best, making the film's love affair unconvincing.
Yet despite this, Garbo helps saves the film with her performance. In spite of Anna Karenina'"

Garbo Works! - A Career (40 movies items)
Garbo's second "Anna Karenina" adaptation is an improvement from the first, with a whole new slew of problems. Frederic March's Vronsky is more manly than Gilbert's version of the character. His flaw is an inability to convey the level of conviction, desire, and inner turmoil that his character should.

"Anna Karenina: I face the truth.
Vronsky: What truth?
Anna Karenina: That one day I shall find myself...*ALONE*.
I know this is a serious moment, but the way Garbo ovemphasized the "alone" with a deep, bellowing tone in this line reading was really funny to me. Capital letters and asterisks can't even do it justice."
