A Scandal in Paris/Lured (Two Films by Douglas Sirk) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Douglas Sirk
A SCANDAL IN PARIS:
"If you talk of art, I consider A SCANDAL IN PARIS my best picture." - Douglas Sirk
Newly Restored! A Douglas Sirk classic. From the memoirs of François Eugène Vidocq, the elegant thief turned chief of police of all Paris, comes this rediscovered classic of melodrama and romance. George Sanders is at his debonair best as we see him climb from clever criminal through the ranks of French society in the early 1800's, with seemingly nothing to stop him from the biggest heist of his career ... except, perhaps, the charms of a young lady.
"""An atmospheric, sensuous pleasure."" - Entertainment Weekly
Newly Restored! From director Douglas Sirk. A serial killer is on the loose in London, luring young women into his web through ads placed in the personal column. Scotland Yard's bait to ensnare the villain is a young American dance hall girl (played by a stunning Lucille Ball), who encounters a series of likely suspects, including the always dashing George Sanders as a sophisticated playboy and an unforgettable Boris Karloff as a mad fashion designer."
