Event Details

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

Miriam Hopkins, Herbert Marshall

Special guest: Joseph McBride, author of How Did Lubitsch Do It? (2018)

 


A suave jewel thief, a beautiful pickpocket, and the wealthy widow they seek to rob form this amorous triangle set in luxurious Venice. Another witty Pre-code film, Trouble in Paradise is more about class and sex than romantic love. Kay Francis is the capable, intelligent Madame Mariette Colet, the owner of a famous perfume company, Herbert Marshall is the seductive gentleman thief and Miriam Hopkins is his light-fingered partner in crime. Depression era audiences were likely delighted to escape into a high society milieu where they could enjoy the beautiful clothes and jewelry while rooting for two well-dressed criminals out to stick it to the rich folks.

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
