The Exile

The sublimely European director Max Ophuls fashioned this 1947 Douglas Fairbanks Jr. swashbuckler during a tour of duty in the U.S. following World War II. It's not one of his more profound or personal efforts, but the film is indispensable as one of the most exhilarating stylistic exercises to come out of Hollywood. For once Ophuls had all the magical resources of a well-stocked American studio to play with, and this meeting of modern technology and romantic tradition produces a number of ineffably beautiful moments. 95 min.
