129 years ago today, Ernst Lubitsch was born in Germany. It was in Germany where he first started his directorial career, directing his first silent film in 1918. He came to Hollywood in 1922 and continued to work as a director up until he suffered a sudden and fatal heart attack in 1947. Lubitsch was famed for the “Lubitsch touch,” which could roughly be translated into the fact that he made sophisticated, sexually-charged comedies for adults. During the Depression, he provided audiences with an escape from the drudgery of everyday life. Lubitsch brought the comedy of manners to Hollywood and his influence is still felt to this day.
