Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda

Directed by Preston Sturges, Not Rated, 94 minutes, 1941


This classic romantic comedy features an underlying satire of the nouveau riche who emerged towards the end of the Great Depression. A plot full of screwball twists, con-artistry and sexual tension eventually brings Charles Pike, played by Henry Fonda, heir to the Pike Ale fortune, together with a woman impersonating an English aristocrat, played Barbara Stanwyck, who while trying to illicitly get her hands on a portion of his fortune, finds true love instead.
