Ernst Lubitsch, Carole Lombard and ... Jack Benny?

It struck me as an odd combination but ... what the heck? Directed by Ernst Lubitsch, a director I've always liked, I decided to give the movie To Be Or Not To Be a try.

Made in 1942, it's Lubitsch's satire of Nazism and he gives it quite a going over. Here's my review of it.
