I bought this copy of Lady Windermere's Fan from Synergy on DVD and I was very upset to learn that it is an edited version of the original Lubitsch film. If you are interested in getting the real version of this film, buy More Treasures from American Film Archives 1894-1931. It costs a lot more than this version, but it's the real untruncated version, and the musical score is much better.

Excellent silent film! This movie kept my interest the entire time and I loved the ending. Irene Rich was fantastic as the outcast mother.

Grainy version of perfectly poised combination of comedy and melodrama worthy of comparison Chaplin 's A Woman of Paris, early De Mille or von Stroheim 's Foolish Wives -- or Trouble in Paradise -- and mind boggling as Wilde without the dialogue.

This Instant Video is a dub from SYNERGY Entertainment, a NYC based DVD-R manufacturer. Their "Archive Series" videos offer no commentary, deleted scenes, subtitles or other bonus features. Dubs are "best available source" and can vary from very good to only fair.

.
As a silent photoplay, Oscar Wilde's 1892 stage drama is slow-moving, practically static (actors sometimes hold still like they're posing for a daguerrotype. I cannot understand why Ernst Lubitsch's picture is so highly regarded. (It includes the director's trademark highly placed knobs on overtall doors.) Categorized as a comedy, I found not a thing amusing about it. (Note: At 89 minutes, it's short a half-hour of the original running time. Maybe the amusing parts got edited out?)

Supposedly a slam on the upper class, "Fan" concerns a young lady married to a bluebood some years her senior. When a middle-aged woman sends Lord Windermere a letter that she must see him, the wife gets suspicious. This visitor, Mrs Erlynne, reveals to the lord that she is his wife's mother, that she gave the girl up for adoption in infancy. Erlynne asks for Windermere's help in introducing her to society so she too can marry a blueblood.

The (ahem) "funny" element is that, convinced hubby is having an affair, Lady W. takes up with a different lord who's been after her for some time.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.
