The Lady Eve (1941) (Criterion Collection) UK Only Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

BARBARA STANWYCK (Sorry, Wrong Number) sizzles, HENRY FONDA (12 Angry Men) bumbles, and PRESTON STURGES (The Palm Beach Story) runs riot in one of the all-time great screwballs, a pitch-perfect blend of comic zing and woon-worthy romance. Aboard a cruise liner sailing up the coast of South America, Stanwyck's conniving card sharp sets her sights on Fonda's nerdy snake researcher, who happens to be the heir to a brewery fortune. But when the con artist falls for her mark, her grift becomes a game of heartsand she is determined to win it all. One in a string of matchless... comedic marvels that Sturges wrote, directed, and produced as part of a dazzling 1940s run, this gender-flipped battle-of-wits farce is perhaps his most emotionally satisfying work, tempering its sparkling wit with a streak of tender poignancy supplied by the sensational Stanwyck at her peak. Special Features: New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray Audio commentary from 2001 featuring film professor Marian Keane Introduction from 2001 by filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich Interview from 2020 with writer-director Preston Sturges's biographer and son Tom Sturges and friends New video essay by film critic David Cairns Costume designs by Edith Head Lux Radio Theatre adaptation of the film from 1942 featuring Barbara Stanwyck and Ray Milland Audio recording of Up the Amazon, a song from an unproduced stage musical based on the film English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing PLUS: An essay by critic Geoffrey O'Brien and a 1946 profile of Preston Sturges from LIFE magazine [show more]
