GENRE:
Comedy, Silent
We may all be in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars! Ronald Colman, May McAvoy, and Bert Lytell star in this silent version of Oscar Wilde’s classic play, directed by three time Academy Award nominee Ernst Lubitch. Voted one of the New York Times' 10 Best Films of 1925, the story concerns Mrs. Erlynne (Irene Rich), the secret mother of Lady Windermere, whose efforts to be introduced into society leads to a skewering of upper class hypocrisy.
