A glorious demonstration of silent cinema at its best, based on Oscar Wilde’s hit play.

Lady Windermere suspects her husband of having an affair with Mrs Erlynne - a glamorous widow who has recently turned up in London society, surrounded by scandalous rumours. Caddish Lord Darlington is waiting in the wings to offer solace, but all is not as it seems...

The film’s director Ernst Lubitsch famously said “I don’t believe in reproducing a play on the screen exactly as it was done on the stage.

Anyone can make a carbon copy. Carbons are always dull”... a declaration of intent utterly vindicated in this sophisticated and elegant adaptation. Lubitsch surprised everyone by jettisoning Oscar Wilde’s finely honed dialogue. Instead the spirit of Wilde is perfectly captured with small movements, witty framing and clever use of screen sets and location.

Dir. Ernst Lubitsch | US | 1925 | 1h 30m

With: Ronald Colman, Irene Rich, May McAvoy, Bert Lytell

Performing live: John Sweeney (piano)
