Max Ophuls gets the Criterion Treatment

I've always loved La Ronde, Max Ophuls 1950 classic.... and as it's been years since I've seen it I was so happy to see that Criterion is putting it out on DVD. Also among the Ophuls releases is The Earrings of Madame de... (1953) which is easily among the movies on my must-see-but-haven't-yet list. So glad that now I'll be seeing it in a Criterion transfer.

Certainly, Letter From an Unknown Woman (a great movie) must be in Criterion's sights, and his final film Lola Montes.

I'm very excited Max Ophulus is getting the criterion treatment. I have never seen his films but they were always at the top of my must see lists
