They Shot Pictures Episode #01: Ernst Lubitsch

Welcome to the debut episode of They Shot Picturesa podcast dedicated to exploring the filmographies of older, relatively under seen and somewhat obscure directors. Each episode we pick a director and watch and discuss 2-3 of his/her films. The goal here is to jointly revisit some of our most beloved directors as well as discover some new favorites.

In this episode, we discuss three films by Ernst Lubitsch. We start with one of his early silent romantic comedies from 1919, The DollWe then move on to what is arguably the most intensely dramatic of his films, Broken Lullaby and conclude with his sexy, risqué Hollywood rom-com, Design for Living.
