Product Overview

Leo Tolstoy's definitive nineteenth century romantic tragedy comes to life onscreen with deft direction by Julien Duvivier and a haunting performance by Vivien Leigh in the title role.

Beautiful Anna Karenina is comfortably married to a distinguished Czarist statesman (Ralph Richardson) until she meets a dashing young soldier and nobleman (Kieron Moore). When she runs off with the officer, she is ostracized by society, denied a divorce by her husband and forbidden to see her son. The hopelessness of the situation, compounded by her lover's lack of understanding about her disgrace, prompts the tragic heroine to believe life is no longer worth living in one of the cinema's most spellbinding tragic tales.

Editors Note
Note Vivien Leigh stars as Anna Karenina, a woman who leaves her socialite husband behind for a more exciting military officer. In search of a meaningful relationship as well as an exciting and more adventurous life, Anna goes through a string of emotions when she becomes the third party of a strenuous love triangle. From depression to happiness to near emotional destruction, she must learn to deal with the elements that surround her tragic existence.

Review Beautifully restored for DVD, and packaged with several nice bonuses, 20th Century-Fox has released, under their Cinema Classics Collection banner, the 1948 version of Leo Tolstoy's romantic tragedy, Anna Karenina, starring the incandescent Vivien Leigh and Ralph Richardson. Produced by the legendary British filmmaker Alexander Korda, and directed by Julien Duvivier, Anna Karenina has atmosphere to spare, with the beginnings of an intriguing central performance by Leigh...Beautiful to look at, with some imaginative touches to the direction, Anna Karenina would seem a sure-fire adaptation of Tolstoy's famous novel of adultery and social criticism. But a miscast Leigh, along with a constipated production that emphasizes looks over content, drags this superficial, thinly scripted version into cliched romance novel territory. Rent it for the costumes, the cinematography, and for Leigh's aborted performance.

Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine A handsome film, and a real keeper for fans of Vivien Leigh's unstable beauty.
Variety Leigh dominates the picture, as she rightly should with her beauty, charm and skill.
