Dir. Ernst Lubitsch. 1932, 83 mins. 35mm. With Miriam Hopkins, Kay Francis, Herbert Marshall. There is no greater evidence of the “Lubitsch touch” than this sparkling, captivating romantic comedy in which the seemingly perfect affair between a debonair jewel thief (Marshall) and a wily pickpocket (Hopkins) is threatened by the arrival of a beautiful perfume company executive (Francis). The charm of its stars, Lubitsch’s elegant direction, and Samson Raphaelson’s endlessly witty script make this perfect entertainment.
