Two rediscovered early classics from Douglas Sirk.
A Scandal in Paris: From the memoirs of François Eugène Vidocq, the elegant thief turned chief of police of all Paris, comes this rediscovered classic of melodrama and romance. George Sanders is at his debonair best as we see him climb from clever criminal through the ranks of French society in the early 1800's, with seemingly nothing to stop him from the biggest heist of his career... except, perhaps, the charms of a young lady. A new HD transfer from an archival 35MM interpositive.
Lured: A serial killer is on the loose in London, luring young women into his web through ads placed in the personal column. Scotland Yard's bait to ensnare the villain is a young American dance hall girl (played by a stunning Lucille Ball), who encounters a series of likely suspects, including the always dashing George Sanders as a sophisticated playboy and an unforgetable Boris Karloff as a mad fashion designer. Restored from 35MM nitrate and 16MM safety material.
