And now, on with the show!
The Lady Eve (1941) Starts: 7:30 PM, Ends: ~9:00 PM
Starring: Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn, Eugene Pallette
Director: Preston Sturges
Plot: A trio of shipboard card sharks sets their sights on the nerdy, herpetologist heir to an ale fortune, but things go a bit cockeyed when the lady falls for the goofy mark. Stanwyck was never funnier, and Fonda is surprisingly appealing as the male ingenue. One of Preston Sturges' very best films -- they don't make comedy this witty anymore (sigh). The card game scenes with the great Charles Coburn alone are worth the price of admission ("Well would ya look at that: I could have sworn one of you would have four aces!")
