SCREWBALL COMEDY CLASSICS FOR THE 2013 NEW YEAR
Ernst Lubitsch Double Feature!
TROUBLE IN PARADISE / CLUNY BROWN
TROUBLE IN PARADISE
1932, Paramount, 83 min, Dir: Ernst Lubitsch

In this classic by director Ernst Lubitsch, posh European thief Gaston Monescu (Herbert Marshall) meets his match and the love of his life in Lily (Miriam Hopkins), a pickpocket who disguises herself as a countess. The mischievous duo find work with the lovely Mariet Colet (Kay Francis), owner of the Colet perfumery, and Gaston assumes the position of her secretary, Monsieur Leval. When gossip begins to spread that Mariet is being stolen away from previous suitors by a charming “M. Leval,” Gaston must choose between the two beautiful women in his life.


CLUNY BROWN
1946, 20th Century Fox, 100 min, USA, Dir: Ernst Lubitsch

Director Ernst Lubitsch's last complete film is one of his funniest. Jennifer Jones is a female plumber working as a maid on an English estate; in other words, it' s RUGGLES OF RED GAP in reverse. Charles Boyer is a penniless Czech intellectual smitten by Jones and befriended by rich Peter Lawford. With Helen Walker, C. Aubrey Smith.


Screening formats: 35mm | Unfortunately, Nicola Lubitsch will be unable to attend as previously announced.
