To Be Or Not To Be - TSPDT #71
A polish theater troupes leading lady amorous little sidestep leads to a chain of unexpected trouble.
Although it has some dated humor in there it is quite funny to watch and the sexual undertones of the dialogue especially when the young pilot is trying to get to Miss Tura are quite amusing to watch.
Especially noteworthy are the killing of the professor in the theatre, with the curtain going up in just the right moment and the Shylock performance just before the end.
Noted that Lubitsch uses mostly the Americaine for camera.
