Kay Francis

(Super) popular 1930s movie actress, not completely unknown in
2008 but something near it. Look at that amazing hat.

Kay Francis
Kay Francis actress

She is probably best known in the 21st century for the Ernst Lubitsch film "Trouble in Paradise" from 1932. In that film she carefully creates a (humorous) portrait of a beautiful and extravagant owner of a French perfume works. Herbert Marshall is a master-thief who works his way into her trust, all the while plotting to abscond with her fortune. The complications ensue when both the nominal employer (Francis) and the phony butler/secret thief (Marshall) find that their mutual attraction is getting the better of them. Contains the typical Lubitsch attention to dialogue that distinguishes his films in a unique way, shading wit and and underlying dialogue that goes well beyond the actual spoken words.
