Product description

Product Description

SYNOPSIS: Jean Renoir once said of Ernst Lubitsch ( Ninotchka, The Shop Around the Corner, and To Be or Not to Be): "He invented the modern Hollywood. " And none of the director's films has had greater influence or impact than Trouble in Paradise. With his first comedy of the sound era, Lubitsch created one of cinema's supreme visions of shimmering romance and worldly sophistication.

When career thief Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) meets glamorous pickpocket Lily (Miriam Hopkins), their love soon takes on a professional dimension as they initiate a plot to rob beautiful perfume magnate Mariette Colet (Kay Francis). But as Gaston gets ever closer to his intended prey, his romantic confusion, as well as the threat that his past will catch up with him, throws their plan into jeopardy.

A breathtakingly nimble and elegant examination of the perils of mixing "business" with pleasure, this gloriously adult and witty comedy features a peerless screenplay by Samson Raphaelson, effervescent performances by its stars (including Charlie Ruggles and Edward Everett Horton), and exquisite direction by the legendary Lubitsch. Rarely equalled, never topped, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the UK home viewing première of Trouble in Paradise.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

  • New high-definition transfer in the film's original aspect ratio
  • Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired
  • Illustrated booklet featuring the words of Lubitsch, rare archival imagery, and more
  • Further details to be announced nearer the release date!
