    1931. USA. Produced by Selenophon. With Charles Chaplin. Charlie talks!

  • Reunion in Vienna

    1933. USA. Directed by Sidney Franklin. Screenplay by Ernest Vajda, Claudine West. With John Barrymore, Diana Wynyard, Frank Morgan. Based on Robert E. Sherwood’s reworking of a Hungarian play by Ernest Vadja (co-screenwriter of The Smiling Lieutenant), Reunion in Vienna is a romantic comedy starring John Barrymore and Diana Wynyard in the roles made famous by Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontaine in a successful Theatre Guild production on Broadway. The film centers on the seductive reunion between the rakish former Archduke Ferdinand von Hapsburg, now deposed and working as a taxi driver, and his old flame Elena, now married to a psychiatrist. Incensed by Barrymore’s buffoonish depiction of the fictional archduke, Austrian diplomats called for the film’s censure. Courtesy George Eastman House. 98 min.
