Dir. Ernst Lubitsch, 70 min. With Monte Blue, Patsy Ruth Miller, Lilyan Tashma

The overlooked Monte Blue, one of Warner Brothers’ big names of the 1920s, stars with Patsy Ruth Miller in this frothy confection directed by Ernst Lubitsch. After years in Germany, Lubitsch had come to America in 1923 and established his “Lubitsch Touch” in Hollywood with films like this,  The Marriage Circle (’24) and Lady Windermere’s Fan (’25). Another great director, Leo McCarey, guides Charley Chase through his misadventures in our two-reel opener Innocent Husbands (’25).

  1. Dear Ms. Matsumura,
    I want to thank you again, and repeat myself after having taken in your splendid performance today at the Bruno Walter Auditorium, after which I went forward to offer my sincere congratulations to you in person while on stage. I thought your performance was sterling, clear, precise and extremely well timed with the images on screen. Both films scoring by yourself were natural, belonged. I have listened for years at theses film showcases with Ben Model, you are easily on par with him, flawless.

    I also listened just now to your “Ashes of Vengeance: A Rhapsody,” and insist you should have it recorded with orchestra on CD, it’s a beautiful moving composition. Your a great artist and deserving of recognition.

    All my best wishes for continued success and happiness,
    Glen Weisberg
