The Doll

The Doll is a 1919 Ernst Lubitsch film about a young man who fears women but has been offered a generous dowry to marry. He buys a doll in the likeness of the dollmaker's daughter in order to claim the money, but due to the assistant's damage to the doll the daughter steps into the role. When the young man is insistent on taking the doll with him on the spot, the real woman plays along.

This film is absolutely delightful.

DVD Talk says, "This is a charming, unpretentious, and funny movie.  With many comic scenes and some wonderful acting on Oswalda's part, it's a true gem."
