They have an instant sweet chemistry, and she spends the night. He spends the next day teaching her to fish which does not go well and making love which presumably goes better. But Rodney has to run and enter a bridge design contest, as you often must do, leaving her alone to be chased after by her uncle once more.
She hides away in a circus where she unfortunately has to face an unbearable choice— to be taken back and forced into marriage or to allow the ringmaster to rape her. In revenge, she promises him that old line about her bedroom being open to every man but him from now on, etc, etc. A year, maybe more later and Rodney has become an alcoholic mess, while Helga has snuggled comfortably in high society.

Because, up to this point, Helga— who now calls herself Susan Lenox— is absolutely right. She finally found a way to manipulate that system for her own gain and has succeeded.
And only at the cost of the self respect Rodney had denied her so many years ago anyway. He calls her a parasite and storms off once more. She realizes he still loves her and she must still love him, thus beginning a cross country search. The last third of the movie drags unforgivably as Helga and Rodney dance around each other more.
Nothing can break it. Will Gable and Garbo get together? That ending is all about romantic fidelity, and how staying truly in love with one person can help you overcome all of the vile cheapness in the world. Love conquers all, the movie implies.

When the film was finished, the notoriety of the novel alone was enough for British censors to ban it from release. With a few swift cuts, however, it was finally approved in the UK with a new title: The Rise of Helga. Though Susan Lenox went through as many as two dozen writers and the pairing of Garbo and Gable was awkward, the film did make money.

There was talk of starring the two together again in the movie Red Dust , but it was not to be. The second story is that the dog was a trained movie dog and at the end of the film Clark loved him so much he paid the dog trainer double what he was worth the keep him.
I tend to believe the first story myself. Danny — Very fair and good review of Susan Lennox. Like other films of the time, the stars and wardrobe were better than the script. Still, it deserves to be analyzed, so thanks for covering it.
And the wardrobe here definitely deserves more praise and discussion than anything else about it. I had a contrary view and liked the movie a lot. I actually was indifferent towards Garbo before watching this film, and seeing her in it made me like her more.
