Double Feature: Preston Sturges

MUBI Special

The Lady Eve

Preston Sturges United States, 1941

Next from Preston Sturges is one of the greatest rom-coms of all time, starring Fonda as a world-class dupe and Stanwyck as a cynic who falls in love. After an enchanting meet-cute on a cruise, deceptions and entanglements dizzyingly follow, brilliantly skewering class and testing love. Essential.

Sullivan’s Travels

Preston Sturges United States, 1941

This week we stifle our laughs to present a double feature devoted to one of Hollywood’s great comedians: writer-director Preston Sturges. A rollicking, high concept movie-making satire, Sturges here asks the hilarious but brutal question of whether one should make films for laughs or for messages.
