Cinema Gourmet Continues With The Lady Eve
March 16, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$20.00
Cinema Gourmet, Golden Isles Arts & Humanities’ popular series pairing delicious food with classic films, continues on Thursday March 16, 2023 with the 1941 screwball comedy, The Lady Eve, starring Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck. The film’s screening and discussion are paired with the culinary delights of Chef Judah Lynch and Indigo Coastal Shanty. The evening’s events begin with delicious food at 6:30 p.m.
It’s no accident when wealthy Charles (Henry Fonda) falls for Jean (Barbara Stanwyck). Jean is a con artist with her sights set on Charles’ fortune. Matters complicate when Jean starts falling for her mark. When Charles suspects Jean is a gold digger, he dumps her. Jean, fixated on revenge and still pining for the millionaire, devises a plan to get back in Charles’ life. With love and payback on her mind, she re-introduces herself to Charles, this time as an aristocrat named Lady Eve Sidwich. The Lady Eve is a fast-paced battle of the sexes with numerous deceptions and character transformations. A career highlight for Preston Sturges, The Lady Eve benefits from Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda’s sparkling chemistry — and a script that inspired countless battle-of-the-sexes comedies.
