Miriam Hopkins before Bette Davis
Fortunately, there are a few gems that were filmed just prior to Bette becoming the queen of Hollywood that showcase Miriam Hopkins at her best. She had swell comic timing, and a beautiful face made for closeups. On Tuesday night, we'll pay tribute to Miriam in a fantastic Ernst Lubitsch classic, Trouble in Paradise -- gorgeous to look at, with stunning set pieces, clever dialogue, and just the right touch of sentiment, this film is a charmer. Trouble in Paradise is the first film in our series Love American Style -- which examines the changing mores and ideals regarding love and romance during the golden age of film.
