As nervy as it is hilarious, this screwball masterpiece from Ernst Lubitsch (Trouble in Paradise) stars Jack Benny (The Jack Benny Program) and, in her final screen appearance, Carole Lombard (My Man Godfrey) 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 soon after the U.S. entered World War II. Lubitsch manages to brilliantly balance political satire, romance, slapstick, and urgent wartime suspense in a comic high-wire act that has never been equaled.
What can I say? One of my favorite movies. Jack Benny at his best, same for Carole Lombard. A great cast of studio regulars. Nicely rendered into HD. In B&W as I recall.Published 7 days ago by Vicki DM
This original version is the best with outstanding performances by Jack Benny and his supporting cast. A funny/sad story of the Nazi brutality and those who fought back.Published 7 months ago by Rodamu
Not many like this where it gets funnier every time you watch it. In situations as I mention here, that is a sign of a well written script. Read morePublished 7 months ago by The Purple Heart
