Charles Pike (Fonda) has been in the jungle and, suspecting his desire of female company, is targeted by con-woman Jean Harrington (Stanwyck). Jean falls genuinely in love, but when Charles finds out who and what she is he refuses her attentions. So, she sets about breaking his heart under the guise of Lady Eve Sidwich.
A wonderful picture set in a world of silly heirs and sharp-eyed dolls as remote from reality and yet wholly credible as that of P. G. Wodehouse.
