The Lady Eve (1941)

 Rated R because our mouths belong in a potty.

Lady Eve 3

Lucky #21 in the Next 100 Project is one of the great screwball rom-coms to ever see the light of day. Barbara Stanwyck defines silky greatness and Henry Fonda (yes, ol’ Hank) is delightful at pratfalls and silliness. This is positively Preston Sturges’ masterpiece! Before you hear our words, get some Sparkplug Coffee.
