TROUBLE IN PARADISE

1932 / 83min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: ERNST LUBITSCH

CAST: MIRIAM HOPKINS, KAY FRANCIS, HERBERT MARSHALL

The Friday screening will be introduced by J. Smith-Cameron.

If you are looking for the quintessence of Ernst Lubitsch’s art, simultaneously effortless-seeming and totally purposeful in the smallest gesture, you couldn’t do much better than this larcenous romantic comedy, in which thief Herberrt Marshall and pickpocket Miriam Hopkins meet-cute while trimming the smart set on the Riviera and decide to team up, an arrangement complicated when he decides to set up heiress Kay Francis and starts to fall for her instead. Trouble in Paradise will be screening with Dinah, featuring music act The Mills Brothers practicing their unique four-part harmonizing on the song of the same name.

Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation and The Film Foundation.
