    I don't think I've heard a single thing about this great film since the advent of DVD. I'm sure we'll get it some day, but it would be nice to hear something about it. A shame there's so little Lubitsch on DVD. We need more.

    It's apparently coming in 2005 with a new transfer off the original negative[off nitrate elements] (according to Warner Home Video).

    I couldn't agree more. I'm a huge Billy Wilder fan and after hearing all of his praises for Lubitsch, I have wanted to see more of his films. I've only managed to see the following.
    • Shop Around the Corner
    • Ninotchka
    • Bluebeard's Eighth Wife
    • Trouble in Paradise

    At least that covers the films that are most widely praised, but I want to see more.

    There was a terrific Lubitsch set that Universal put out on laserdisc that included THE LOVE PARADE, MONTE CARLO, THE SMILING LIEUTENANT, ONE HOUR WITH YOU, and TROUBLE IN PARADISE. ANGEL was released on VHS. BROKEN LULLABY--his only serious film--and the terrific CLUNY BROWN have never been released in any format. Silent films ETERNAL LOVE and as part of the "More Treasures from the AFA" box, LADY WINDEMERE'S FAN are available on dvd.

    Really? Sweet. If that news was announced somewhere at some point, I completely missed it.

    For those who can't wait and who have multi-region players, it's available in region 2 in France - I bought it on amazon. Wonderfully funny film.
