Watch: PTA's 15 Minute Intro To Max Ophüls' ‘The Earrings of Madame de...' Criterion Collection DVD

Back in 2008, PTA recorded a 15 minute commentary/intro to Max Ophüls classic "The Earrings of Madame de..." for the Criterion Collection DVD. Now, thanks to the magic of the internet you can watch that online. There are spoilers if you've never seen the film but even so, it'll probably make you more inclined to pick up the disc and watch the film. (Thanks Matt8U!)

"The Master" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.    
Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.


  1. So glad i paid all that money for the criterion dvd, mainly for this PTA intro, only for it now to turn up on the internet. I think i'll cry myself to sleep tonight.

    1. So what you're telling me is now you own a great film with a ton of special features and that's a bad thing?

  2. Is there anything by Max on Netflix? I was unable to find anything.

  3. This apparently 'does not exist'
