Ernst Lubitsch - So This Is Paris (1926)

A sadly neglected gem from Ernst Lubitsch, a marriage farce that should rank just below The Marriage Circle, but sadly has been little seen. Starring Monte Blue, Lilyan Tashman, and blink and you'll miss her Myrna Loy, playing a maid. Some nice directorial touches and camera tricks by Lubitsch, and the wonderful Charleston sequence, which has been called "the closest silent film ever came to being musical", highlight this fun as hell film.
