100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"One of the great overlooked comedies of Hollywood's Golden Age, Ernst Lubitsch's 'Trouble in Paradise' fell off the radar largely due to the rigid morals of the Production Code. The film was originally released in 1932 before the Code's puritanical influence took hold, and so its light-hearted, gleefully naughty depiction of two con-artists in love who set about defrauding a wealthy widow was free from demands that sexual innuendo by removed and that any criminal activity be punished. As such, '"

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2012 (50 movies items)

"UNDER THE RADAR Miriam Hopkins Analysis leads to paralysis, so they say—and dissecting the much-dissected “Lubitsch touch” is a bit like reading the nutrition facts for a bowl of perfect, gossamer-light meringue; it tends to subtract the deliciousness. After all, no Lubitsch film is the sum of its shimmering parts: one can always sense the director’s light-as-a-feather mastery shaping and enchanting all the elements. That “Lubitsch touch”—a catch-all phrase for his urbane wit, sly "

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"Billy Wilder’s films generally got the Oscar love they deserved (especially given that they were comedies), but his mentor Ernst Lubitsch wasn’t so lucky. The great director did receive three Best Director nominations, but many of his films went unrecognized, and along with “The Shop Around The Corner,” the most anger-inducing absence was his sparkling con-caper “Trouble In Paradise,” one of his very finest, and yet a film that didn’t pick up a single nod (even another of his maste"
