Film: The Lady Eve

A 1941 Screwball Comedy by Preston Sturges.

Jean Harrington (Barbara Stanwyck) and her dad (Charles Coburn) are Con Men who set their sights on rich and not overly bright heir Charles Pike (Henry Fonda) while on the same cruise ship. Much to her surprise, Jean falls for the Adorkable Charles, but before she can tell him who she is, his manservant outs her as a con. Naturally, Charles dumps her, and Jean decides to pull a con on him as "The Lady Eve" to really screw with him...
