THE STUDENT PRINCE (in Old Heidelberg)

♪4:30

Saturday, June 10

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

Starring Norma Shearer

Live piano accompaniment by Steve Sterner

(1927) Crown prince Ramon Novarro, happy at last as simple Heidelberg student, and in love with innkeeper’s niece Norma Shearer, must renounce all for the throne. Lubitsch for once eschewed sly innuendo for a tender evocation of lost young love, creating the impossible: a silent operetta. 35mm. Approx. 106 min.
