Fantastic example of pre-code Hollywood. This is an absolute gem. Didn't see the ending coming.

Per usual: witty, charming, characters to fall in love with and alongside, events leading to fall in love with the characters falling in love, heartwarming, delicate, generous handfuls of playful humor. Though, it is still not as strong in comparison to Lubitsch's others. It feels less flavorful. Toned down. To add to it, this one was much too sad, heartbreaking, and to be honest, I was ill-prepared for the occasion. A thunderous back and forth of confusing, mixed emotions.
Although, even still, his are greater than all others'. Ernst Lubitsch is in a whole entire other league of his own. A master.

Lovely. Divine. Wonderful.

Two master thieves (Miriam Hopkins and Herbert Marshall) fall in love at the top of Trouble in Paradise, then set their sights on a rich perfume heiress (Kay Francis) who may not be without charms of her own, setting up a romantic triangle in this saucy pre-Code crime comedy. What a romp! The dialog crackles, the characters are smart and insightful, and Ernst Lubitsch's direction is slick and inventive. So many great ideas for transitions, bits of humorous montage, and provocative shots. It's great right down the line. But you know what? Whichever pairing you root for, it's irresistibly ROMANTIC. Not that you can take any of it too seriously, but it's like Marshall has chemistry of some sort or other with everyone he meets in this. And me a huge fan of grifter movies... where has this been all my life?
