TROUBLE IN PARADISE (Masters of Cinema) (DVD) DVD

| DVD

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.

Classic comedy from Ernst Lubitsch in which a conman finds himself torn between two beautiful women. Smooth-talking thief Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) can hardly believe his luck when he meets Lily (Miriam Hopkins), a skilled pickpocket. Given their professions, it would be a stretch to characterise the relationship as a match made in heaven, but Gaston and Lily certainly seem suited to one another. However, when the intrepid pair set their sights on the wealth of perfume magnate Mariette Colet (Kay Francis) - a scheme that requires Gaston to seduce Mariette - the seeds are sown for a potentially deadly love triangle...
