A great movie on TV you haven’t seen

The Earrings of Madame de… (1953):   This is one of the great movies that you have NOT seen, having just been released on DVD in 2009.  Max Ophuls directed what is perhaps the most visually evocative romance ever in black and white. It’s worth seeing for the ballroom scene alone.  The shallow and privileged wife of a stick-in-the-mud general takes a lover, but the earrings she pawned reveal the affair and consequences ensue. Great Italian director Vittorio De Sica plays the impossibly handsome lover.   TCM 10/6
