Celeste Holm, All About Eve - Elegant intelligent funny love you Celeste!

THE LADY EVE (1941) Mr. Sturges wrote this sweet piece of business where Stany watches Henry Fonda using her makeup mirror as her periscope. This marvelous gag allows us to join Stany as she pokes fun at Hank, conveying that this gold digger may be tough, but still has a heart of gold. The 'meet-cute' scene that follows this bit where Jean meets Hopsie is hands down the best meet cute ever written for the screen.

Star Rating: 4 Length of Film: 97 minutes Director: Preston Sturges Cast: Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Colburn, Eugene Pallett.

THE LADY EVE: (1941) Mr. Sturges uses several visual aids to move the story ahead and this is one of the best. This is the backside of the S.S. Southern Queen's passenger list, with an ad for Pikes Pale, 'The Ale that won for Yale' We see/hear this gag used in several ways in the next scenes, always making us Laugh Out Loud, as the lines & delivered with such dead-pan accuracy.

THE LADY EVE: (1941) Preston Sturges Masterpiece stars Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda. The plot is a silly piece of fluff about broken hearts, hidden identities with a happy ending. Its not the plot that is magic, its THE DIALOG, pithy with real charm delivered with a razor sharp edge. Mr Sturges, having been reared in a blue-blood NYC family with REAL MONEY knows how the upper classes really speak, think & canoodle. Every gag, every detail & every last character actor are spot-on…

THE LADY EVE: Preston Sturges masterpiece starring Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda.
