Preston Sturges, 94 min. in English without subtitles.

On a transatlantic ocean liner, the con-artist team of resourceful, sophisticated and alluring Jean (Barbara Stanwyck), along with her crooked but lovable father named the Colonel (Charles Coburn) meet up with the heir to a brewery fortune— the wealthy unsophisticated Charles (Henry Fonda) who has just returned from a year of studying snakes in the Amazon—and attempt to bamboozle him at the card table. Their plan is quickly abandoned when the daughter falls in love with their prey. But when Charles gets wise to her gold-digging ways, Jean  must plot to re-conquer his heart. One of Preston Sturges’s funniest comedies, The Lady Eve balances engaging comedy and sophisticated sexiness with perfect grace.
