Cracking the (Pre) Code: Design for Living

Groundbreaking comedy about a commercial artist (Miriam Hopkins), a playwright (Fredric March), and a painter (Gary Cooper)—Americans in Paris—who form a triangular living relationship.

A commercial artist (Miriam Hopkins), a playwright (Fredric March), and a painter (Gary Cooper)—American expats in Paris—form a triangular living relationship to encourage creativity. But success comes at a price when romantic rivalries play out. A provocative comedy adapted from a play by Noël Coward, Design for Living was groundbreaking in its celebration of an assertive independent woman.
