Reviews
ReviewSource Slant Magazine
Review [Both] Ernst Lubitsch's early career in Germany is still somewhat unexplored territory (though a recent Film Forum retrospective filled in a lot of gaps for many). When he started directing, Lubitsch himself played the leads in a series of short comedies, and he later developed a taste for epic historical pictures like Madame Dubarry and Anna Boleyn...In the first [The Oyster Princess], which is billed as "a grotesque comedy in four acts," Oswalda plays a spoiled heiress who insists on getting a husband. Lubitsch dissects the foibles of the rich while tickling the audience's lust for luxury: the set design is filled with vast empty spaces and rococo decoration...I Don't Want to Be a Man is more chaotic and unfocused, but Oswalda holds it all together with her bumptious high spirits, and the gender-bending of the plot still seems pretty worldly.

Quotes
Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion.org [Oyster] ...I like this antsy little Ernst Lubitsch comedy far better than that same year's Madame DuBarry...
Michael Koller, Senses of Cinema [Man] ...cross-dressing comedy cinema territory of I Was a Male War Bride (1949) and Tootsie (1982).
