Ernst Lubistch’s most celebrated film brings the energy and fizz of the screwball comedy to a sharp political satire.

Set in Warsaw at the outset of World War Two, it stars Jack Benny and Carole Lombard (in her final screen appearance) as married actors who, when Hitler’s troops invade, must, with the rest of their company, give the performances of their lives to save pilot Robert Stack and the Polish resistance from Nazi spies.

This screening features a live introduction by the Emmy-award winning producer Caryn Mandabach, who was a driving force behind much loved series including Roseanne, That 70's Show and Nurse Jackie, to name but three.
