Trouble In Paradise

Play Trailer

A gentleman jewel thief, a glamourous pickpocket and a high-society heiress trade possessions and romance in this pre-code romantic comedy from one of early Hollywood’s finest directors, Ernst Lubitsch. The film’s innuendo-heavy script, or ‘verbal foreplay’ as Roger Ebert referred to it, is brought playfully to life by the film’s three charming leads. Sophisticated, stylish and with surprising emotional depth, Trouble in Paradise bears all the hallmarks of the famed Lubitsch Touch and is a perfect introduction to Paradise Day.
