Product Overview

Gary Cooper (High Noon), Fredric March (The Best Years of Our Lives), and Miriam Hopkins (Trouble in Paradise) play a trio of Americans in Paris who enter into a very adult "gentleman's? agreement, in this continental pre-Code comedy freely adapted by Ben Hecht (Notorious) from a play by No?l Coward (Brief Encounter), and directed by Ernst Lubitsch (Trouble in Paradise). A risqu? relationship comedy and a witty take on creative pursuits, it concerns a commercial artist (Hopkins) unable?or unwilling?to choose between the equally dashing painter (Cooper) and playwright (March) she meets on a train en route to the City of Light. DESIGN FOR LIVING is Lubitsch at his most adroit, an entertainment at once debonair and racy, featuring three stars at the height of their allure.

Christopher Long, Movie Metropolis The dialogue is sharp without seeming too impeccably perfect to be real human speech.
Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers A daring movie that satirizes sexual mores and heaps irony upon irony.
