To Be or Not To Be

Dir. Ernst Lubitsch
(99 min, United States, 1942)

Special 75th Anniversary Screening! Carole Lombard’s last film is much more highly regarded today than at the time of its release. Cast as the wife of Jack Benny, a hammy Hamlet in an acting troupe stranded in wartime Poland, she was never more alluring or more in control of her craft.


Sunday, May 28, 11:30 am
AFI Silver Theatre

Silver Spring, MD

  • “The finest picture of her most Lubitschean masterworks, [the film] is both hilarious and provocative and has aged like good vintage wine”Larry Swindell
