[The Miriam Hopkins Blogathon] Design for Living: Intro

A Note from Maedez:

Before SNL, before Rita, there was Miriam. Pronunciation differences aside, her Gilda, from the 1933 motion picture “adaptation” of Noël Coward’s sensational play Design for Living, is ten steps beyond delightful.

Knowledge of the play isn’t a prerequisite to watching the film: the two share little more than a superficial resemblance. Each can be enjoyed on its own merits. Of course, only one has our Miriam!
