Trouble in Paradise Reviews
Miriam Hopkins and Kay Francis were both good, but it's Herbert Marshall who I really liked. I've always found him to be rather one-dimensional -- the urbane but weak leading man to strong actresses such as Bette Davis. To see that same character hiding a true snake in the grass was so much fun. Edward Everett Horton and Charlie Ruggles were entertaining as well, as the side story of the two men vieing for Kay Francis' hand.
I've read that Ernst Lubitch was the father of screwball comedies. Without him films such as Bringing up Baby and My Man Godfrey may not have existed. I've seen several of Ernst Lubitch's films -- Ninotcka, Shop Around the Corner, etc. -- and have enjoyed every one. He might just become one of my favorite directors.
"...(If) you made any attempt to handle your own business affairs, I would give you a good spanking - in a business way, of course."
A fine comedy with good dialogue, and really brought you back to the thirties. But I didn't find the story to grand.
