I DON’T WANT TO BE A MAN
(Ernst Lubitsch; 1918; Germany; 45 min.)
A teenage tomboy wearing a lace bonnet cries out, “Why wasn’t I born a boy?” Tired of being bossed around by a strict guardian, Ossi Oswalda’s character dresses in masculine clothing in order to have more fun, but discovers that it’s not as easy as it appeared. What ensues is a gender-bending comedy that was decades ahead of its time.
