  • The Oyster Princess

    1919. Germany. Directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Screenplay by Lubitsch, Hanns Kräly. With Victor Janson, Ossi Oswalda, Herry Liedtke, Julius Falkenstein. Even as early as this 1919 film, German critics applauded the “Lubitsch touch,” noting that, no matter whether the story is strong, or weak, Lubitsch makes it “good,“ with “verve” and “elegance,” and “in a style never before seen in a German comedy” (Film-Kurier, 1919). Courtesy of Murnau Foundation. Silent. Approx. 60 min.
