Trouble in Paradise

  • Dir: Ernst Lubitsch

  • USA, 1932, English, 83mins, DCP

  • Cast: Miriam Hopkins, Kay Francis, Herbert Marshall

Legendary thief meets his match in fellow larcenist, but the love between these perfect partners in crime falls under investigation when he plans to burgle both money and heart of their latest target – the sexy, ditsy heiress to a perfume manufacturing empire. Filled with pre-Code sexual innuendo and a quintessential example of “the Lubitsch touch” that sparkles with wit, sophistication, and elegance, Trouble in Paradise – the director’s own personal favourite – is a masterpiece of romantic comedy, a pinnacle of sly virtuosity and high-style cynicism that reigned in 1930s Hollywood.
