See these films: One Hour With You + Modern Times @ ArtsEmerson

One Hour With You (1932)

Ernst Lubitsch, the master of subtle, edgy, and bracingly witty romantic comedy, collaborated with George Cukor to reboot his silent confection The Marriage Circle (1924) into the saucy musical One Hour With You (1932; 7 pm). In it a happily married couple prove that wedded bliss doesn't necessarily require fidelity. It stars Jeanette MacDonald and everyone's favorite creepy rake, Maurice Chevalier. And if you prefer your silent movies to remain that way, drop by a little earlier for Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times (1936; 2 pm, also Sunday), a slapstick look at the working class getting ground up by the system, a theme that is all the more relevant today. Both are Saturday, October 29 at ArtsEmerson in the Paramount Center, 559 Washington St, Boston | $10; $7.50 seniors; $5 students | 617.824.8400 or
