A screwball masterpiece

As nervy as it is hilarious, this screwball masterpiece from Ernst Lubitsch stars Jack Benny and, in her final screen appearance, Carole Lombard as husband-and-wife thespians in Nazi-occupied Warsaw who become caught up in a dangerous spy plot. To Be or Not to Be is a Hollywood film of the boldest black humor, which went into production right before the U.S. entered World War II. Lubitsch manages to brilliantly balance political satire, romance, slapstick, Shakespearean play and wartime suspense in a comic high-wire act that has never been equaled.

Filmclub theme December 2019: Shakespeare Readapted
Shakespeare was often adapted to the big screen, but some adaptations took quite some liberty with the original plays. December will be dedicated to unique and beautiful cinematic reinventions of Shakespeare’s plays “Romeo and Juliet”, “'The Tempest” and “Hamlet”.
