"Anna Christie" (1930) Gets Production Board Approval 32 Years Later

Feb. 19, 1962 - Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer today obtained a seal of approval for “Anna Christie” (1930) from the Production Code Authority. The studio thus maintained, almost at the last minute, its record of never having released a movie without a seal from the industry’s self-censoring body. “Anna Christie,” the first film in which Greta Garbo’s voice was heard, will be revived Wednesday at the Eighth Street Playhouse in New York. It was adapted from the Eugene O’Neill Pulitzer Prize play of 1922. The movie, which Metro at first assumed had a seal, was made in 1929 before the introduction of the seal.
