75TH ANNIVERSARY EVENT SCREENING – 35MM PRINT
Q&A with Professor Thomas Doherty, author Hollywood and Hitler
As nervy as it is hilarious, this screwball masterpiece from Ernst Lubitsch stars the incomparable Jack Benny and Carole Lombard as husband-and-wife thespians caught up in a dangerous spy plot in Nazi-occupied Warsaw. A Hollywood film of the boldest black humor, it went into production soon after the U.S. entered World War II. Lubitsch brilliantly balances political satire, romance, slapstick, and urgent wartime suspense in a comic high-wire act that has never been equaled. (Dir: Ernst Lubitsch | USA | 1942 | 100m | English)

“Lombard at her apex, Lubitsch at his most inspired.” –Film Critic Andrew Sarris 

“One of the most perfectly structured and audacious of screen comedies.” –Time Out London 

“Lubitsch’s finest achievement, certainly one of the most profound, emotionally complex comedies ever made.” –Chicago Reader
