Film Series: Design for Living

1933. USA. Dir: Ernst Lubitsch. With Miriam Hopkins, Gary Cooper. 91 min.


When two struggling artists find that they’re having an affair with the same woman, the woman proposes: why not share? This refined yet obscene sex comedy employs Lubitsch’s signature wit to poke fun at dating norms and the vanity of jealous men, presenting a “Pre-Code” vision of romance more progressive than most rom-coms today. Intro by Prof. Michael Slowik, CFILM.
