Claudette Colbert, John Barrymore and Don Ameche star in this classic screwball comedy written by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett. Showgirl Eve Peabody (Colbert) finds herself alone in Paris without a penny to her name. With the help of taxi driver Tibor Czerny (Ameche) she looks for a job but to no avail. He offers to give her a place to stay for the night but, not wanting to become acquainted with a poor man, she gives him the slip and ends up at a black tie party where she uses the alias 'Baroness Czerny'. There she meets the wealthy Georges Flammarion (Barrymore), who discovers Eve's true identity and offers to pay her a vast sum of money to help him break up his wife Helene (Mary Astor) and her lover Jacques Picot (Francis Lederer), who has taken an interest in Eve. As she encourages Jacques' advances, Tibor, concerned about Eve, is searching Paris for her with the help of some fellow taxi drivers. Soon Eve finds herself having to choose between financial security and love.
