Film Series: To Be or Not to Be

1942. USA. Dir: Ernst Lubitsch. With Carole Lombard, Jack Benny. 99 min.


During the Nazi occupation of Warsaw an unlikely husband-wife duo find themselves at the center of a convoluted spy plot, leading a ragtag band of merry stage actors as they apply their dramatic talents to fool the resident Gestapo forces. Lubitsch’s genre-mixing farce balances sidesplitting laughs with biting political satire and nervy wartime suspense.
