A Touch of Lubitsch
United States | 1932 | Ernst Lubitsch
In Lubitsch’s celebrated pre-Code romantic comedy, a master thief (Herbert Marshall) and a beautiful pickpocket (Miriam Hopkins), both masquerading as European nobility, join forces to rob a wealthy perfume manufacturer (Kay Francis). This amoral hit was withdrawn from circulation when the Motion Picture Production Code went into effect in 1934, and remained shelved until 1968. “As close to perfection as anything I have ever seen in the movies.” –Dwight Macdonald.
