LADY WINDERMERE’S FAN (1925)

Based on the play by Oscar Wilde

A classic of the silent era, Lady Windermere’s Fan has come to define director Ernst Lubitsch’s sublime touch – suave direction, sparkling wit, meticulous performances, and precise mise-en-scene in which every glance, gesture, and object subtly conveys meaning. Based on the Oscar Wilde play about hypocrisy of Victorian morals, particularly the institution of marriage, Lady Windermere’s Fan begins as Mrs. Erlynne returns from foreign travels to blackmail her daughter’s husband into introducing her into polite society so she can snag a lord she’s determined to marry. The plan backfires when her daughter, who does know of her existence, mistakes the scheming older woman for a rival. Already a critically acclaimed director in Germany, Lubitsch’s success continued in the US with classic films like The Shop Around the Corner, To Be or Not to Be, Ninotchka, Trouble in Paradise, Design for Living, and he is credited with bringing to American cinema all the distinctive aspects of European comedy, replete with what one critic would call “its charm, decadence, and frivolity.” (USA, 90 min., b/w, silent)
