A Touch of Lubitsch John Ewing introduces

To Be Or Not To Be

United States | 1942 | Ernst Lubitsch

To Be Or Not To Be

A troupe of Polish actors led by a hammy husband-and-wife team (Jack Benny, Carole Lombard) outwit Hitler and the Nazis in this hilarious (and sometimes heartbreaking) comedy set in occupied Warsaw during WWII. Accused of bad taste in its day, this is now regarded as one of the all-time great screen comedies.

99 min. 35mm. The film will be introduced by Cinematheque Director John Ewing at 5:15.
