Today in Movie History: February 25

Only one movie today, but it’s a good one. The Lady Eve, Preston Sturges’ delightful comedy about a slick con artist (Barbara Stanwyck) who falls for an earnest (and rich) snake expert (Henry Fonda) onboard an ocean cruise. It’s a high point for all involved, but it’s Stanwyck who dominates with a comedic performance for the ages. It opened today in 1941.
