Lubitsch in Berlin 5-DVD Box (DVD)
7 Films on 5 DVDs.
Before he set the Hollywood standard for sophisticated comedy, Ernst Lubitsch was equally innovative for German cinema in the late 1910s and early 1920s. With a remarkable series of films, ranging from outrageous and anarchic comedies to groundbreaking historical dramas, Lubitsch established himself as one of Germany's most vital filmmakers and the first German director to achieve consistent box office success in America.
The Oyster Princess
A hilarious silent comedy from a master filmmaker. A pampered American oyster tycoon decides to buy a husband for his daughter, but things don't go quite as planned. Along the way there are mishaps, misunderstandings and a foxtrot sequence that must be seen to be believed.more info
A groundbreaking historical epic from legendary director Ernst Lubitsch. The tragic story of the second wife of England's Henry VIII is given first-class treatment, complete with opulent sets, beautiful cinematography, and a bravura performance by Emil Jannings (THE LAST LAUGH, THE BLUE ANGEL) as Henry. more info
A rebellious harem girl rejects the old sheikh and instead falls for a charming clothing merchant in this exotic spectacle that is one of the key early works of the celebrated director. The cast includes Pola Negri as a traveling dancer and Lubitsch himself as a hunchbacked clown. more info
A charismatic lieutenant newly assigned to a remote fort is captured by a group of mountain bandits, thus setting in motion a madcap farce that is Lubitsch at his most unrestrained. A wonderfully anarchic and playfully subversive satire of military life from one of the great comedy filmmakers. more info
Presaging such playful sex comedies as Lubitsch's Trouble in Paradise and Design for Living, THE DOLL follows the misadventures of an effete young man who must get married in order to inherit a fortune.more info
