The Painted Veil
Greta Garbo headlines this moving romantic drama based on W. Somerset Maugham's acclaimed novel about a lonely woman who strays from her husband then fights to redeem herself. In a loveless marriage to Dr. Walter Fane, Katrin has an affair with politician Jack Townsend. After Fane travels to the interior regions of China to quell a cholera epidemic, Katrin also goes there and works tirelessly by her husband's side, eventually falling in love with him for the first time. When Townsend arrives, she must choose between staying with her husband, who has been seriously injured in a peasant uprising, or going back home with Townsend. Some scenes were shot in China.
