The Pride of the Firm
22 January 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Ernst Lubitsch, later one of the great directors of the cinema, started out in films as a 'Jewish Comedian.' However, this movie is not a farce, but the story of how a clumsy young man from the sticks -- when we first see him, he is a window dresser in a dry goods shop who breaks the window -- through push and hard work, remakes himself with the advice of the girl he loves. When we first see him, he is an ugly young man with a mop of unruly hair who does not know how to dress. By the end of the movie, he is a distinguished-looking man on his honeymoon.

This is not a farce, but Lubitsch manages to get in a few comic touches, playing his character as sly and cowardly, but sweet. There is some very nice photography, thanks to Danish cinematographer Axel Graatkjaer, and leading lady Martha Kriwitz is charming as Lubitsch's distaff Pygmalion. These make it a better than average picture for the era.
