The Lubitsch Touch


Ninotchka (1939)   
Friday, March 15 – Wednesday, March 20, 2013

During his years in Hollywood, the renowned director Ernst Lubitsch directed some of the most daring, romantic and hilarious films of his time. His seemingly effortless ability to sidestep taboo and make romantic, funny films about complex sexual and emotional issues – not to mention his wit and urbanity – began to be dubbed “The Lubitsch Touch.” There was just something about his work, something that film historians still struggle to put their fingers on, something that made his films seem to occur outside of time and place – and beyond the reach of puritanical censors and Hollywood bosses. Get a taste of “The Lubitsh Touch” with this brief series including some of his best films.
