Rating:

The Marriage Circle is a classic 1924 silent comedy directed by Ernst Lubitsch and produced by Warner Bros. This film follows the infidelities and elitism, the flirtations and rejections, of elite members of Vienna society. It provides not only a comedic interpretation of these upper crust citizens, but also provides an influential, though veiled, social criticism of the times. The story stars Professor Stock (Adolphe Menjou) who is always picking a fight with his young wife Mizzi. Mizzi (Marie Provest) in turn starts to set her eye on Dr. Braun (Monte Blue), the new husband of her close friend, Charlotte (Florence Vidor). Thus begins a dynamite affect of affairs, rejections and suspicions. The film ends with Professor Stock hiring a detective to follow his supposedly cheating wife in the hopes of obtaining a divorce. This film demonstrates the skills of Lubitsch as a director and his ability to carry a charged film without relying on dialogue.
