The Marriage Circle
Dir. Ernst Lubitsch (1924) Lubitsch's second Hollywood film made for a relatively new and still minor studio called Warner Bros. is a sophisticated comedy, acknowledged by him to have been greatly influenced by Chaplin's "A Woman of Paris." It was a turning point in the director's career--from now on he would abandon lavish spectacle and casts of thousands to concentrate on an intimate view of a handful of people and a witty examination of their love affairs.
