The Lady Eve

March 6, 2019, 7:15 PM

Do you think the movement for women’s equality in movies is a recent development? How about a movie that clearly — and charmingly, and hilariously and wittily — argues casually for her absolute SUPERIORITY in a Hollywood romantic comedy from 1941?

The Lady Eve is all that and more as the fantastic Barbara Stanwyck runs comic, erotic and romantic circles around her handsome but befuddled paramour Henry Fonda in Preston Sturges’ masterpiece. Stanwyck plays Jean Harrington, a card shark on an ocean liner who plies her trade on the outclassed rich boy played by Fonda.

Featuring one of the great closing lines in cinema history as well as everything else in its treasure trove. What a trove!

(Unrated, 94 min.)

Screened as part of our 2018-2019 Presence of the Past film series, a new series of screenings held monthly through April 2019 at Railroad Square Cinema. Presented by the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities and the Maine Film Center.

FREE ADMISSION for anyone with a Colby College I.D. For all others, regular admission prices apply.
