Meyer aus Berlin

With actors Ernst Lubitsch and Ossi Oswalda.

This early silent classic stars director Ernst Lubitsch as Sally Meyer, a young Jewish playboy in Berlin who devises a ruse to convince his wife that he is ill while he pursues erotic adventures in the Swiss Alps. In a twist, he ends up in the Bavarian Alps by mistake, donning the guise of a Tyrolean and becoming wrapped up in a comical web of deception and misunderstanding that comes to a head when Meyer’s wife and fiancée both arrive to crash Meyer’s party.
