  8. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Design for Living

    (...)Ganz nebenbei setzt er dabei die Grundregel der romantischen Hollywood-Komödie ausser Kraft: Die der Monogamie. Normalerweise werden Treue und Vertrauen der Liebenden erprobt, um anschliessend eine Familie zu gründen. Wohl bemerkt: Lubitschs Zweifel an diesen Werten wirken dabei nie verletzend!(...)

  9. LeeRoy Turtledove's rating of the film Design for Living

    "don't ever bow to double chins"

  10. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Design for Living

    This is about knowing exactly when a scene must start and when it must end, how to tell what has happened in an ellipsis, how to project thoughts and feelings into objects, and there are even some great bits of silent comedy. In a few words, Lubitsch and Hetch stick to a way of conveying things indirectly, but not too indirectly, and they make the most of it.

  11. SpacePirate's rating of the film Design for Living

    A very racy film with the Lubitsch touch. March and Cooper work well off of each other here. A fine pre-Code era comedy/love triangle. Worth a look

  12. pepoire's rating of the film Design for Living

    This was great etc, but someone please coach me, I wish to acquire Miriam Hopkins' weirdo accent.

  13. Fátima Pinheiro's rating of the film Design for Living

  14. Brendan's rating of the film Design for Living

  15. bartkl's rating of the film Design for Living

    A tale of platonic love and art versus carnal desire and lust, revolving around Gilda, the mother of the arts, the heart of the love triangle. Although the plot seems rather superficial, it is very well written, including witty dialogues and clever symbolism. I am usually no fan of theatrical exaggerations, but here it's done so consistent and well that I was able to embrace it. A very charming and mature film.

  16. El Biffo's rating of the film Design for Living

    Surprisingly explicit sexuality for a Hollywood comedy starring Gary Cooper, and the theme is downright scandalous! 4.5 stars

  17. Eugene Kotlyarenko's rating of the film Design for Living

  18. Jack D. Fleischer's rating of the film Design for Living

  19. Log Lady's rating of the film Design for Living

    Racy, sexy, and intelligent. Pre-Code is a wonderful era, and in a lot of ways Design for Living is an adept representation of it. The leads work well together (although Hopkins seems to outshine the rest) and the dialogue is good. I just wasn't a fan of the plot, but maybe that's due to the original play.

  20. Catherine Krummey's rating of the film Design for Living

  21. José Neves's rating of the film Design for Living

    Cinematography by Victor Milner. "Desire" list: Gary Cooper, again - but Fredric March and Miriam Hopkins are amazing . "(...) I will leave all and come and make the hymns of you,/None has understood you, but I understand you, /None has done justice to you, you have not done justice to/yourself,/None but has found you imperfect, I only find no/imperfection in you, (...)

  22. Aida's rating of the film Design for Living

  24. Cole Caudle's rating of the film Design for Living

    Perhaps it suffers from watching it right after Trouble in Paradise. I felt there was this palimpsest like residue of the original play that unfortunately did not totally jibe with the cast and direction. Though there are plenty of joys to be had.
