SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS / THE LADY EVE
SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS
1941, Universal, 98 min, Dir: Preston Sturges

Director Preston Sturges’ most acclaimed comedy is something like a social-realist movie with a wicked sense of humor. Successful Hollywood director Joel McCrea grows weary of making "entertainment pictures" and decides to hit the road disguised as a hobo to research his first "serious" film. A roller-coaster of mishaps and coincidences lands him on a chain gang, as well as in the arms of lovely Veronica Lake, before he learns what audiences crave the most.


THE LADY EVE
1941, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: Preston Sturges

Henry Fonda is dim-witted ale heir "Hopsy" Pike ("Snakes are my life"); Barbara Stanwyck is Eve, cardsharp and con artist par excellence. Can this relationship work? Savage but never mean-spirited, this is Sturges at his best, blending violent slapstick, zesty dialogue and genuine romance into a peerless masterwork. With Charles Coburn, William Demarest, Eugene Pallette and Eric Blore.
