This screening is part of our November celebration of Tough Ladies in Cinema!

The crown jewel in the career of mad comedic genius Preston Sturges, THE LADY EVE is truly one of the greatest romantic comedies ever to come out of the Golden Age of Hollywood. And seeing as the romantic comedy was essentially the raison d'etre of classic Hollywood, THE LADY EVE can be seen as the fullest, most perfect expression of everything which movies of that time aspired to. Genuinely romantic and impossibly funny, Sturges pulls off a breathless balancing act in which his leading lady lies, cheats and steals her way to real love. It's an anarchic, coldly brilliant comedy about the humiliation of a man (Henry Fonda) by a woman (Barbara Stanwyck) that slowly involves your feelings until by the end you become genuinely moved by the sincerity lurking beneath their fundamentally dishonest relationship.
