  1. Denis Zordan's rating of the film The Lady Eve

  2. Jeff Heinzl's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    I’ve never been more confused about the Hays Code. The film portrays seduction and deceit as not just ok but necessary for romance; the morality police are dumb as shit, hiding in the room while you fuck but afraid to look nonetheless. Purity is a serpent, and the serpent is pure. Now take of the animal, and eat.

  3. McOpinionated's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Some very interesting sex/class politics in a very old-fashioned setting. Bizarre to see Henry Fonda in a role like this, when he is most familiar to me from Once Upon a Time in the West. Barbara Stanwyck is amazing.

  4. Inteleter's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Absolutely delightful. Extremely well written and features great performances from both Fonda and Stanwyck. Was extremely fun to watch. Will definitely revisit.

  5. Veronika Wellings's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    In short, vey funny, superb acting and is always a joy to watch

  6. Mr. Delite's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Ridiculous, idiotic and a frustrating waste of time. It made no sense and was totally pointless - but not in a good way.

  7. Cashmira's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    An all time classic and enjoyable watch.

  8. SamSalt's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Loved it, And that scene with her getting him to put her shoes on for her was so erotic. Lots of clever dialogue to get around the code too.

  9. P D Dawson's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    I loved the early sequences of this film, with Stanwyck & Fonda falling over each other, one intentionally, the other not. And there were some touching romantic scenes with the two potential lovers. But the later stages seemed too forced to be funny and the magic of the romance was truly gone, until the end scene, where the reunited lovers rekindle their failed love in an unsatisfying and predictable way.

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Un petit chef-d'oeuvre d'humour et de finesse, avec un excellent et séduisant Henry Fonda lunaire et dégingandé, spécialiste en chutes diverses et en changement intempestif de smoking. Un véritable régal d'un réalisateur dont la courte filmographie recueille quelques autres inestimables pépites du même succulent acabit... www.cinefiches.com

  11. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Barbara Stanwyck has to be one of the best temptresses ever put on screen as Henry Fonda gets hitched on her little finger. There is not much of a breather here either as this one is filled up with fun great scenes from start to end. Truly a masterpiece in it's genre.

  12. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Despite a strangely cynical, and sometimes outright cruel, second half, The Lady Eve is a wonderful rom-com that boasts fine lead performances from Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda, as well as wonderful supporting turns from Charles Coburn and Eugene Pallette. Another winner from director Preston Sturges.

  13. Esteban Henao's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    By God, that Barbara Stanwyck lady sure can act. What a professional and what a joy to see her perform.

  14. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Quelle belle comédie ! Duo de stars extraordinaires et pléiade de seconds rôles truculents. Une mécanique bien huilée aussi efficace qu'un panda sur un banc de montage !

  15. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    A romantic comedy with twists and turns. Great acting, better script.

  16. Pierre.F's rating of the film The Lady Eve

  18. liv@liv's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    i thought this film was really fucking funny! but i can't remember why, now that its over. not quite camp but in the same ballpark maybe?

  19. lumpenprinzess's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    The writing is just brilliant. And Barbara Stanwyck gets the best lines. A joy

  20. Sushi Overdose's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Is love stronger than swindle and dillisusion ? Romantic and burlesque, an amazing comedy with a fantastic pair of actors.

  21. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Great poker scene Lead lady is wonderful

  22. Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Charming comedy with an all-time casting. Sturges gives here his best impression of Hawks, rhythm and fine lines, some visual gags, it is all good. Fonda is made for this naive role, his voice, his eyes are perfect for this character. Stanwick as a crooked femme fatale is also right where you want her to be. If it is not perfect, it is only because Lubitsch used to write at the time even better comedies.

  23. I.Camera's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    They don't make romantic comedies like this any more - why is that? Henry Fonda plays Hopsie, the very rich and very naive sap repeatedly seduced and confounded by a never better Barbara Stanwyck as Jean (or is it Eve?), a con artist who ends up falling for her mark. As in Sullivan's Travels, Sturges felt free to defy film convention for comic effect (such as having a horse intrude on one's romantic interlude!).

  24. AugusteB's rating of the film The Lady Eve

    Wow. Stanwyck is a revelation in this film.
