Henry Fonda, Barbara Stanwyck, and Preston Sturges Behind the Scenes of The Lady Eve (1941)
I’m fairly certain I’ve mentioned this before (and I’m equally certain I’m about to do it again)…. Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck are two of my absolute favorites. Top tier, never say a negative thing about them in my presence favorites. Which is why I am head over heels in love with the fact that they not only made several movies together, but one of them in particular is one of my all time favorite films. Nothing against The Mad Miss Manton (their adorable first film), but The Lady Eve is an absolute work of perfection.
As in every single minute.
I also love the fact that it’s apparent they enjoyed working together. It comes through every scene and it’s just delicious.
Speaking of delicious – I will never (and I mean never) get over the fact that they were holding hands in this adorable behind the scenes picture. I’m also never getting over how cute she is in her hat, but that’s for another day.
