Trouble in Paradise

August 11 at 4:00
East Building Auditorium

Master crooks and con artists Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) and Lily Vautier (Miriam Hopkins) fall in love and then decide to cozy up to wealthy entrepreneur heiress Madame Colet (Kay Francis) — but life gets complicated. Trouble in Paradise’s witty repartee is surpassed only by its elegant visuals. “Lubitsch is a director of surfaces that continually reveal themselves to be illusions” — Jan-Christopher Horak. (Ernst Lubitsch, 1932, 35mm, 82 minutes) Restored from 35mm nitrate studio print and 35mm acetate duplicate negative by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by The Packard Humanities Institute and David Stenn.
