Over the years I have read a lot of good things about Ernst Lubitsch and his famous "Lubitsch's touch" in regards to films. It seemed that Trouble In Paradise (1932), his most celebrated film, would be the place to start. And I think this was justified by his sophisticated modern comedy, from which all the other classic "screwball" comedies have evolved from. It treats sex in an adult manner and doesn't end with a moral-they criminals get away with crime. There are some great performances form the Herbert Marshall, Miriam Hopkins, and Kay Francis. Lubitsch is very innovative in how gets information across to the audience and avoids cliches and stand film making procedures. The Criterion special features include an informative video introduction by Peter Bogdanovich, audio commentary by Lubitsch biographer Scott Eyman (Ernst Lubitsch: Laughter in Paradise), Lubitsch's silent film Das fidele Gefangnis (The Merry Jail 1917), 1940 Screen Guild Theater program, tributes written by Billy Wilder, Leonard Maltin, Cameron Crowe, Noah Baumbaugh, Wes Anderson, P. T. Anderson, Orson Welles, Roger Ebert, Frank Capra, critic Jonathan Rosenbaum, Charlie Chaplin, William Wyler, author James Harvery, and Jean Renoir.
