Trouble in Paradise

Chestnut Hill Film Group’s ‘Tuesday Nights at the Movies’ begins its Winter/Spring schedule on Feb. 11 at Woodmere Art Museum. The first screening will be the 1932 film, “Trouble in Paradise.”

The romantic comedy follows a gentleman thief and a lady pickpocket who happen to meet and fall in love in Venice when they’re both pretending to be of nobility. Realizing the ‘talents’ they possess as a couple, the two set out for Paris, where they get jobs working for a famous perfume manufacturer. Little does the manufacturer know that her two newest employees are con-artists who plan on robbing her for a large sum of money.

The film was directed by Ernst Lubitsch and stars Herbert Marshall, Miriam Hopkins and Kay Francis. Co-starring is Edward Everett Horton and C. Aubrey Smith. In 1991, the film was selected to the National Film Registry in the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

The movie begins at 7:30 p.m. at Woodmere Art Museum. Doors open at 6:30. Admission is free, although donations are recommended.
