Lubitsch’s last German film before his emigration to the US was thought lost until a few years ago. Painstakingly restored from footage salvaged in several countries, The Loves of Pharaoh (“Das Weib des Pharao”) reveals the great director at a critical point in film history as well as the state of Egyptological knowledge on the eve of Howard Carter’s discovery. Massive sets, detailed props, meticulously restored color tints and a modern orchestral recording of the 1922 score recapture for today’s audiences the magic of classic film in the silent era.With English subtitles
