Romeo and Juliet in the Snow (1920): Alpine treatment of Shakespeare, complete with happy ending twist. 35mm print courtesy Deutsches Filminstitut. Approx. 46 min.​

“A LITTLE GEM! A lively riff on Shakespeare… even the young Lubitsch was able to frame and time comic sequences with just the right angles and scene length.” 
– Eric Monder, Film Journal 

“A deliberately gross re-telling.”
– John Gillett

Meyer in Berlin (1919): one of a series of popular “Jewish comedies” starring Lubitsch himself as a go-getting schlemiel. 35mm print courtesy EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam. Approx. 60 min.
