Crime pays handsomely in this smart and stylish double feature based on the adventures of Arsene Lupin, fiction’s most famous gentleman thief. John and Lionel Barrymore “make a marvelous team in their first film together” in the risque Pre-Code mystery Arsene Lupin (1932), costarring Karen Morley. A wily police detective matches wits with France's greatest criminal as the notorious thief attempts to make good on his threat to steal the Mona Lisa.
Melvyn Douglas “is a delight” in the witty sequel Arsene Lupin Returns (1938), co-starring Virginia Bruce and Warren William. Having faked his own death, Lupin (Douglas) Claims he’s retired and assumes the role of a gentleman farmer. But when a series of robberies suggests that the thief is still alive, an insurance detective (Warren William) attempts to track him down, convinced of Lupin‘s guilt.

John Barrymore provides an embarrassing spectacle in the semi-autobiographical role of a ham actor. Constantly in debt and always half-loaded, Barrymore accepts a role in an important play, which he nearly ruins by his intemperate antics. Anne Baxter plays a sincere young woman who tries to pull Barrymore back together. He makes a triumphant comeback, but there's always the chance that he'll be back to his old tricks before long. Tastelessly exploiting the real-life relationship between John Barrymore and Elaine Barrie, The Great Profile is supposed to be a comedy. Ha ha.

The life of Marie Antoinette (1755-1793) from betrothal and marriage in 1770 to her beheading. At first, she's a Hapsburg teenager isolated in France, living a virgin's life in the household of the Dauphin, a shy solitary man who would like to be a locksmith. Marie discovers high society, with the help of Orleans and her brothers-in-law. Her foolishness is at its height when she meets a Swedish count, Axel de Fersen. He helps her see her fecklessness. In the second half of the film, she avoids an annulment, becomes queen, bears children, and is a responsible ruler. The affair of the necklace and the general poverty of France feed revolution. She faces death with dignity.

Le leggi della fisica che governano il mondo sono destinate a essere riscritte. Una scoperta sensazionale - il Flusso - ha cambiato per sempre la concezione spazio-temporale dell'universo, aprendo al progresso scenari inimmaginabili. Assecondando il Flusso, gli esseri umani sono ora in grado di raggiungere pianeti e stelle lontani anni luce, creare reti tra mondi remoti ma interdipendenti, costruire un impero interstellare in cui il pianeta Terra rappresenta ormai solo un insignificante avamposto. Il Flusso è come un fiume: scorre placido, eterno, ma non è statico, cambia il suo corso e abbandona il suo letto originario. A ogni sua mutazione intere fette di universo vengono però isolate, abbandonate a loro stesse in una deriva cosmica catastrofica per interi sistemi stellari. Quella che doveva essere la via verso la nuova era intergalattica si rivela dunque la più pericolosa delle minacce per la sopravvivenza stessa del genere umano.
