“The Lady Eve” (Paramount, 1941). A serial gold digger (played by Barbara Stanwyck) falls hard for one her victims, a sincere but naive heir to a family fortune (played by Henry Fonda). When the greedy scheme is revealed and the couple breaks up, Barbara Stanwyck’s character has a few other tricks up her sleeve to get her man. This romantic screwball comedy is great in every way. Based on a story by Monckton Hoffe. Written and directed by Preston Sturges. “Positively the same dame!”
