Ernst Lubitsch wows again with a surreal bit of comedy concerning a timid young man who buys a doll to pose as his wife, thus avoiding actually having to marry. The only problem is that the doll is a live woman, comedy star Ossi Oswalda.
So we have a woman posing as a doll posing as a woman. Raucous, joyous and more than a little strange, this early Lubitsch is an unparalleled delight.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Our bachelor finally figures out that Ossi is real and falls in love with her, which is very convenient as they are already married.
If it were a dessert it would be: Robot Cake. Who says machines can’t be tasty?
