  A conniving father and daughter meet up with the heir to a brewery fortune—a wealthy but na´ve snake enthusiast—and attempt to bamboozle him at a cruise ship card table. Their plan is quickly abandoned when the daughter falls in love with their prey. But when the heir gets wise to her gold-digging ways, she must plot to re-conquer his heart. One of Sturges’ most clever and beloved romantic comedies, The Lady Eve balances broad slapstick and sophisticated sexiness with perfect grace.

Comments:

Extremely impressive disc from Criterion. The image is a little soft at times with a lot of grain, and contrast is perfect. An excellent commentary and extras are provided. I was very impressed with the mono audio - it sounded exceptionally clear and consistent. It reaches the upper price structure tier for Criterion and is worth it.  out of
