Trouble in Paradise is a 1932 comedy about a couple of hotel thieves who join forces to fleece a wealthy young widow. It is a wonderful light romantic comedy that has not dimmed a bit over the years. The term "meet cute" (a phrase that I've come to despise and distrust due to overuse) could have been coined for the first encounter between Gaston and Lily, our intrepid crooks. While Herbert Marshall, Miriam Hopkins and Kay Francis may not have the name recognition of Barrymore, Garbo and Crawford (from the "other" hotel film released a month earlier), they perform memorably, and there are great supporting parts from Edward Everett Horton, Charles Ruggles, C. Aubrey Smith and Leonid Kinskey. The screenplay by Samson Raphaelson (The Shop Around the Corner, Suspicion) is delightful in Lubitsch's hands... it's quickly-paced but not rushed, all the beats are just perfect. One of film history's great comedies, not to be missed.
