Preston Sturges' classic battle-of-the-sexes screwball comedy, with sparkling chemistry between leads Barbara Stanwyck & Henry Fonda.

A trio of classy card sharks targets the socially awkward heir to brewery millions for his money, until one of them falls in love with him.

Did You Know? Edith Head's first in a long line of costume designing for Barbara Stanwyck. The wedding gown caused a fashion sensation. So much so that it was copied for brides and called, "the Lady Eve dress".
