  • Trouble in Paradise

    1932. USA. Directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Screenplay by Samson Raphaelson, Grover Jones, based on the play The Honest Finder by Aladar Laszlo. With Miriam Hopkins, Kay Francis, Herbert Marshall. This love triangle story begins in Venice, where two sophisticated con artists (Hopkins and Marshall) meet their match in one another, and winds up in Paris, where the pair target a wealthy heiress (Francis). The refined Marshall seduces the beautiful widow as part of the scam, but there's trouble in paradise when jealousy rears its none-too-subtle head. This is the third Lubitsch-Raphaelson collaboration released in 1932, following Broken Lullaby and One Hour with You. Acquired from Paramount Pictures. Preserved with funding from the Richard Griffith Memorial Fund. 81 min.
