The Lady Eve (1941)
Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck
The Lady Eve, co-written and directed by Preston Sturges. With Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, Eugene Pallette, and William Demarest. Everything a film should be - snappy lines, great costumes, fabulous sets, and most importantly entertaining. La Stanwyck is at her absolute loveliest.
In short, it is about a lady cardsharp who tries to con an eccentric scientist only to end up falling for him.
The good girls are never as good as they seem to be, and the bad ones never as bad.
Now playing: Ella Fitzgerald - Let's Fall in Love
