Watch the trailer for The Lady Eve (1941)
“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”
Dir Preston Sturges
With Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn
The Lady Eve is a match made in cinematic heaven — a classic screwball comedy from Preston Sturges, complete with dazzling stars.
Con-artist Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck) manipulates her way through life, getting what she wants with skill, charm and charisma. On a cruise she meets Charles (Henry Fonda), a gullible millionaire and snake scientist, who falls for her in a heartbeat. But then he learns of her past…
Hilarious, wild and romantic, The Lady Eve is the perfect romantic comedy for a Valentine’s Day screening.
