Eclipse 1931: The Smiling Lieutenant

Now that’s a train I’d like to ride.

This is very amusing. It’s not hilarious or anything, but it’s got a good flow going on, and the characters are good, and it never stops amusing.

I was disappointed in the previous two Lubitsch movies, but this works.

I really like this movie… but… I’d be hard pressed to actually say what the plot here is. It’s kinda effervescent?

They’re gonna fuck!!!

He’s very happy about that.

The Smiling Lieutenant. Ernst Lubitsch. 1931.
