Bluebeard's Eighth Wife- On TCM April 19!!


Recommended Posts

Am I reading this correctly, or do I see Bluebeard's Eighth Wife listed on the TCM schedule next month?! I believe She Done Him Wrong was originally schedule during that time slot, but was dropped for this film. I've been wanting to see more of Lubitsch's films, and this sounds very good. I'm very happy to see this airing!!

 

Anyone seen this film yet? What are your thoughts on it?

Just watched this, and loved it!!

 

I never seen Gary Cooper so angry and animated before. He's not over-the-top, but Coop's a delight in showing his frustrations towards Claudette Colbert's antics.

 

This is somehow considered by some to be among Lubitsch's worst films. How can this be? It may not be quite as great as Trouble in Paradise or The Shop Around the Corner, but it's a very funny film. The script by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett is pretty darn good as well. Perhaps my favorite moment was Coop trying to "tame" Colbert. Of course, he's not successful.

 

Thanks, TCM, and please show again soon!!
