The Lady Eve

December 58:30pm
There will be a post-screening Q&A with film historian Nick Smedley, author of ‘Preston Sturges: The Last Years of Hollywood’s First Writer-Director’.

Glorious screwball comedy” (Guardian)

Barbara Stanwyck shines in this hilarious revenge rom-com: a con woman sets her sights set on a likeable rich boob (Henry Fonda).  One of the finest achievements of Golden Age Hollywood’s first writer-director, Preston Sturges.

A wonderful picture set in a world of silly heirs and sharp-eyed dolls as remote from reality and yet wholly credible as that of P. G. Wodehouse” (Empire)
