    BARBARA STANWYCK (Sorry, Wrong Number) sizzles, HENRY FONDA (12 Angry Men) bumbles, and PRESTON STURGES (The Palm Beach Story) runs riot in one of the all-time great screwballs, a pitch-perfect blend of comic zing and swoonworthy romance. Aboard a cruise liner sailing up the coast of South America, Stanwyck’s conniving card sharp sets her sights on Fonda’s nerdy snake researcher, who happens to be the heir to a brewery fortune. But when the con artist falls for her mark, her grift becomes a game of hearts—and she is determined to win it all. One in a string of matchless comedic marvels that Sturges wrote, directed, and produced as part of a dazzling 1940s run, this gender-flipped battle-of-wits farce is perhaps his most emotionally satisfying work, tempering its sparkling wit with a streak of tender poignancy supplied by the sensational Stanwyck at her peak.

    Special Features:
    • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack of the Blu-ray
    • Audio commentary from 2001 featuring film professor Marian Keane
    • Introduction from 2001 by filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich
