Austin Film Society: Latter Lubitsch: To Be or Not To Be
Not rated, 99 min. Directed by Ernst Lubitsch., Starring Jack Benny, Carole Lombard, Robert Stack and Lionel Atwill.
In this hilarious comedy, Jack Benny stars as the hammy leader of a Polish theatrical troupe whose talents are put to the ultimate test when he's enlisted to spy against the Nazi invaders. It's Benny's finest movie role, and Carole Lombard's last. The famed Lubitsch Touch was at its most brashly sardonic in this film.
