  1. Hi, Hunter:

    The scene positively screams Ernst Lubitsch!

    Took me a few minutes, but I’ll go with ‘Trouble in Paradise’.

    A very old school and glamorous film about pickpockets, con men, women and thieves in high society.

    Love the way Lubitsch just skirted the Hayes Act with his saucy, near risque, yet elegant dialogue! Today’s writers and directors should watch and learn!

    • Yup! You got it 🙂
      Trouble in Paradise (1932), directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Miriam Hopkins, Kay Francis, and Herbert Marshall.
      Really fun movie, you’re right about the dialogue. In this movie, they know how to talk around things and make it more funny than if they had just said it outright.
