Renowned as a silent film pioneer andthe man who refined Hollywood comedy with such masterpieces as Trouble In Paradise, The Shop Around The Corner, and To Be Or Not To Be, Ernst Lubitsch also helped invent the modern movie musical. With the advent of sound and audiences clamoring for "talkies," Lubitsch combined his love of European operettas and his mastery of film to produce this entirely new genre. These elegant, bawdy films, created before strict enforcement of the morality code, feature some of thegreatest stars of early Hollywood (Maurice Chevalier, Jeanette MacDonald, Claudette Colbert, Miriam Hopkins), as well as that elusive style of comedy that would thereafter be known as "the Lubitsch touch."Includes:The Love ParadeAristocratic Sylvanians Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald (Whose Hollywood careers were launched by this film) coo like doves and fight like cats in Lubitsch's salty tongued smash, which brought movie musicals into the modern age.Monte CarloBR&Leaving her dandy prince in the lurch, Countless Helene (MacDonald) runs away to the card tables of Monte Carlo, where she soon finds herself gambling with more than money when her new hairdresser Rudolph (a count in disquise) takes a liking to her.The Smiling LieutenantChevalier has the unfortunate task of choosing between his wild musician sweetheart Claudette Colbert and prissy princess Miriam Hopkins when the latter mistakes a wink and a smile as intended for her.One Hour With YouChevalier and MacDonald are a devoted husband and wife who test the sanctity of their marriage as well as the limits of public lovemaking, in Lubitsch's remake of his own silent 1924 film The Marriage Circle
