Oriana Here I Come!,
This review is from: The Lady Eve [DVD]  (DVD)
Ocean cruising has never interested me but if I thought I'd meet someone like the "Lady" Eve on board I'd be on that boat like a shot. Possibly Barabara Stanwyck's most captivating role, it's a delight to watch her pull geeky beer baron Hopsy's (Henry Fonda) strings as she lines him up, reels him in and then charmingly, falls in love with him. This is a role todays female stars would die for: Killer dialog, the opportunity to wind a male star round your finger, and bursting with heart. If only they had the screen power to match Stanwyck. Watch and marvel as she seduces her mark then ruffles his hair and sends him packing from her cabin. Romantic comedy was never better than this.
