Trouble in Paradise
The playboy/thief Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) meets the expert pickpocket Lily (Miriam Hopkins) on the Riviera, and they, of course, fall in love. Initially, they try to steal from each other—a kind of foreplay among thieves—then realize their mutual interests make them a perfect team. In Paris, Gaston gets a job as personal secretary to the wealthy heiress to a perfume company, Madame Mariette Colet (Kay Francis), hiring Lily as maid, so they can rob her blind. Unfortunately, while cleaning up the corruption on her company's board, and settling into a comfortable lifestyle, he also falls in love with her, and must decide between two women, one who offers excitement, the other, stability.
Ernest Lubitsch, US, 1932, 35mm, 81 min., b/w

Preceded by:

Dinah
By the early 1930s, John, Herbert, Harry and Donald Mills, a.k.a. The Mills Brothers, had established themselves as one of the biggest acts on radio with their unique four-part harmonizing accentuated by their uncanny ability to imitate musical instruments with their voices. They made their big screen debut in Paramount’s The Big Broadcast (1932) before being featured in three Fleischer Bros. “Screen Song” shorts, including this one, which invites you to follow the bouncing ball and sing along with their rollicking rendition of “Dinah."
Dave Fleischer, US, 1932, 35mm, 7 min.

The UCLA Festival of Preservation is Co-Presented by Louis Bluver.
