Design for Living (Criterion) (1933)
Gary Cooper, Fredric March, and Miriam Hopkins play a trio of Americans in Paris who enter into a very adult gentlemans agree≠ment in this continental pre-Code comedy, freely adapted by Ben Hecht from a play by NoŽl Coward and directed by Ernst Lubitsch. A risquť relationship story and a witty take on creative pursuits, the film concerns a commercial artist (Hopkins) unableor unwillingto 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 sexiest, an entertainment at once debonair and racy, featuring three stars at the height of their allure.
