An irresponsible, neurotic child spreads a slanderous rumour about a lesbian relationship between the two headmistresses of an exclusive private girls' school. Wyler and executive producer Walter Mirisch decided to return to Hellman's play that had been the basis of the 1936 production, These Three, also directed by Wyler. This time they intended to remain faithful to the play to an extent that had not been possible in the earlier film. However, The Children's Hour was attacked by critics for being too faithful to what they saw as the dated original (a criticism with which Hellman herself apparently concurred). What stands up today is Hepburn's understated playing and MacLaine's committment to the role of a possessive lesbian. This was the first major Hollywood production to deal with lesbianism although the word is never actually spoken

In one of the most eclectic films of the German silent era, visual stylist F.W. Murnau broke away from the dark, foreboding dramas for which he was known to explore the realm of light comedy. Working from a screenplay by Thea von Harbou, Murnau crafted a playful espionage thriller reminiscent of Ernst Lubitsch (who had recently left Germany for Hollywood). Harry Liedtke stars as a 'benevolent dictator' who must preserve the tiny nation of Abacco by fending off creditors, wooing a wealthy Russian princess (Mady Christians) and evading a band of demonic conspirators (including Nosferatu himself, Max Schreck)

Max Ophuls' Liebelei by Max Ophuls( Visual )

10 editions published between 1932 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vienna, 1910; a whirlwind love affair between Fritz, a young lieutenant in the Austro-Hungarian Army, and Christine, the shy and sensitive daughter of a musician, ends in tragedy. Ophuls freely adapted Schnitzler's play in which Christine's great love is just another affair for the dissolute lieutenant already involved with a baroness. In the film Fritz's affair with the baroness has more or less ended and the couple's expression of undying love (not entirely cynical on his part) is threatened by the baron's vengefulness - the portrayal, in the play, of innocence destroyed by cynical players in a decadent society gives way to Ophuls' atmospheric portrayal of love doomed by hollow class distinction and hidebound notions of honour
