Made in 1932, before Hollywood's Production Code enforced much stricter censorship that would last until the sixties, 'Trouble in Paradise' is a wonderfully sly romp full of saucy innuendo and lovable rogues. Herbert Marshall and Miriam Hopkins are outstanding as two terribly, terribly witty thieves, but Kay Francis is more than a match for them both as the convention-flaunting perfume mogul hoping to make Marshall her new boytoy. Director Ernst Lubitsch directs with his famous "Lubitsch Touch", his unique European je ne sais quois that is suggestive without being crass -- by merely casting a shadow onto a bed or perfectly timing the sound of a door locking, he is able to say sophisticated things that American audiences at the time would have otherwise found distasteful. Edward Everett Horton and Charlie Ruggles add hilarious support as two bumbling suitors trying to catch Francis's eye.
