  • "In this adaptation of Oscar Wilde's comedy of manners, the cause of much confusion is the sensational and indiscreet Mrs Erlynne. She returns to London, sends for Lord Windermere and reveals that she is his wife's mother, long thought deceased. When the notorious woman demands payment for her secrecy, a satiric comedy of errors ensues. Considered by many to be Lubitsch's best silent film, Lady Windermere's Fan is noteworthy for its incisive detail, discreet touches and precise nuances. (Circulates)."

  • "Centering around the arrival of a mysterious woman hoping to break into London's society, this was Wilde's first great stage success. Lady Windermere learns from a friend that Lord Windermere is spending a great deal of time with a Mrs. Erlynne, and fearing that he is being unfaithful to her, she decides that their marriage is at an end. Then, in an act of striking generosity, Mrs. Erlynne protects Lady Windermere's reputation and the truth about trust and loyalty is ironically revealed."@en
