    Does anyone know who owns Ernst Lubitsch's film from 1932? And, what are the chances of it getting a dvd release anytime soon?

    Thanks

    I believe that "Trouble in Paradise" originally a Paramount release is now owned by Universal. I haven't heard anything about a dvd release, however Turner Classic Movies just showed it last month and I was able to capture it on a super vhs tape.

    Crap...

    I've never seen this film. Do you know where TCM gets the VHS copy they play on the air?

    I think you're out of luck because I just checked the following resources and only Maltin's book indicates a Laser release only which I don't have any information about the quality nor availability.
    • Leonard Maltin's 2002 Movie & Video Guide
    • Video Movie Guide 2002
    • Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever 2002

    Robert,
    Does Turner Classic Movies show great classics like Trouble In Paradise often? I have that channel via my DirecTv subscription. There are a handful of classics I would love to capture on at least VHS since they aren't available on dvd.
    Do they ever show films like:
    Blowup, Pickpocket, The Exterminating Angel, Greed, Pandora's Box, The Earrings of Madame De... and The Apu Trilogy
    Those are some of my most desired titles and I would love to be able to get them from TCM.
    Hopefully, you're a regular viewer of TCM and will know...

    TROUBLE IN PARADISE was part of a laserdisc boxset issued by Universal called A TOUCH OF LUBITSCH. Three other vintage Lubitsch films were included in this set. Recently it has gone for extraordinary prices on eBay; within the last few weeks, two boxes were sold there, one for 999.99(!) and another for six hundred dollars! Unfortunately it's one of the few Universal box sets I don't own!

    Within the past month or two, I know TCM has shown Greed, Blowup and Trouble in Paradise. I believe TIP was their first ever airing.
