Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"What I am trying to say is: I'm not a poet, I'm an ophiologist."
- Charles Pike (Henry Fonda)
"I need him like the ax needs the turkey."
- Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck)
The pairing of Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck works beautifully.
...[Stanwyck gives] one of her greatest performances, a flight of romance and comedy so graceful and effortless that she is somehow able to play different notes at the same time...
Sturges' superb screwball comedy combines humour and eroticism...
Sight and Sound
[T]he film remains a model of sophistication.
Wall Street Journal
...THE LADY EVE contains both sophisticated humor and all-out slapstick....Fonda's performance is first-rate...
Los Angeles Times
Directed by Preston Sturges, THE LADY EVE stars Barbara Stanwyck as Jean Herrington, a sly con artist aboard a transatlantic ocean liner who happens to run across Charles Pike (Henry Fonda), a snake expert returning from a year in the Amazon jungle. Since Pike is the wealthy and shy heir to a beer fortune, he seems like the perfect target for one of Jean's cons, but as she deceives him she finds herself falling in love. One of Sturges's most hilarious comedies, THE LADY EVE is a romantic comedy masterpiece with two of Hollywood's stars at the top of their form.
