The Lady Eve stars Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck in a classic 1941 romantic comedy written and directed by Preston Sturges (Sullivan's Travels). The wealthy, but naive, Charles Pike (Henry Fonda) has just spent a year in the Amazon studying snakes. Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck) has traveled the world with her father, Colonel Harrington (Charles Coburn), conning first class passengers at card games during cruises. When Jean sets her eyes on Charles on a transatlantic voyage, she recognizes a perfect mark. But when she schemes to bring Charles to her state-room for seduction, she finds herself falling for his sincere and shy manner. Unfortunately for Jean, Muggsy (William Demarest), Charles' loyal and protective valet, warns him about the Harringtons and eventually gathers the evidence to convince the besotted young man. Charles quickly breaks things off and they go their separate ways. Jean wants her revenge though, and she disguises herself as Lady Eve Sidwich and devises a way to meet Charles and break his heart.moreless
