The Lady Eve is a match made in cinematic heaven — a classic screwball comedy from Preston Sturges, complete with dazzling stars. Amiable millionaire Charles Pike (Henry Fonda) and Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck) meet on a transatlantic liner and fall in love. But Jean and her father are card-sharps, conning the rich passengers out of their money. When Charles discovers this, he wants nothing more to do with her – so Jean, piqued, decides to get revenge by masquerading as Lady Eve, an English aristocrat, to ensnare him once more. Hilarious, wild and seductive, The Lady Eve is the perfect romantic comedy.

“One of the warmest, funniest, most romantic movies ever made” Indiewire
