From the mind of Preston Sturges (Sullivan’s Travels) comes this screwball comedy classic about a lovelorn millionaire (Henry Fonda), the con artist (Barbara Stanwyck) after his fortune, and the conflicting feelings that place both of them in a complicated scenario played out aboard a luxurious ocean liner. Selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, The Lady Eve is commonly listed as one of the greatest comedies and films of all time.
