  • DVD Review: 'Design for Living'

    When Ernst Lubitsch's comedy about a Bohemian menage a trois was released in 1933, it took a lot of heat for its lack of fidelity to Noel Coward's original stage play. Screenwriter Ben Hecht boasted that he had retained only one line of dialogue from the play. True or not, what Hecht added was a less frenetic rendition of the style of “The Front Page” and “Twentieth Century,” his collaborations with Charles MacArthur. While the play may be more sophisticated, the movie is many times funnier and more infectious. Fredric March, Miriam Hopkins and Gary Cooper sparkle as the three lovers/friends; and even their foil (the wonderful Edward Everett Horton in one of his classic fussbudget roles) is given some sympathetic aspects.
