Tagline: Barbara Stanwyck has Henry Fonda Bewitched and Bewildered

Plot: THE LADY EVE, directed by Preston Sturges, stars Barbara Stanwyck as Jean Herrington, a sly con artist aboard a transatlantic ocean liner, who happens to run across Charles Pike, (Henry Fonda) a snake expert returning from a year in the Amazon jungle. Since Pike is the wealthy and shy heir to a beer fortune, he seems like the perfect target for one of Jean's cons, but as she deceives him she finds herself falling in love. One of Sturges's most hilarious comedies, THE LADY EVE is a romantic comedy masterpiece with two of Hollywood's stars at the top of their form.
