Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

United States 1932 81 mins. In English

Lubitsch’s whip-smart pre-code love triangle sees thieves Herbert Marshall and Miriam Hopkins team up on the rich of the Riviera, with only the well-to-do Kay Francis standing in the way. A work of pure genius on all levels, Trouble in Paradise cemented Lubitsch’s reputation in Hollywood as a master storyteller and has since become known as one of the crucial films of the pre-code era.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
