TO BE OR NOT TO BE
Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not to Be is a 1942 black comedy about a Polish theater company--led by Joseph and Maria Tura (Jack Benny and Carole Lombard)--that turns to espionage after being shut down by the invading Nazis.  This film is a hilarious lampooning of The Third Reich at the beginning of WWII.
