The Lady Eve (PG) – 1941, USA, 92 mins
Director: Preston Sturges
Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda are perfectly matched in this Sturges classic. Stanwyck is the card sharp who sets out to fleece earnest, millionaire ophiologist (snake expert) Fonda on a liner from South America, only to fall in love with him. When he breaks off their romance, she poses as glamorous English aristocrat “the Lady Eve Sidwich” in order to win him back.
“You can’t get a better romantic comedy than The Lady Eve”
Peter Bogdanovich (Paper Moon, The Last Picture Show)
“One of the warmest, funniest, most romantic movies ever made”. Indiewire
“Sturges’s superb screwball comedy is hilarious, wild and romantic.” BFI
