Eve Knew Her Apples Details


Eve Knew Her Apples is an pinchpenny musical reworking of Frank Capra's Oscar-winning Frank Capra. Musical star Ann Miller takes over the Claudette Colbert role; this time she's not a runaway heiress but a runaway radio star, escaping her stuffy fiance rather than her autocratic father. William Wright assumes the Clark Gable part as the man who helps the girl on her flight for his own mercenary interests, but who eventually falls in love with her. Clocking in at 64 minutes rather than Frank Capra's 105, Eve Knew Her Apples is more successful as a showcase for the terpsichorean talents of Ann Miller than as a romantic comedy. Columbia Pictures would attempt to musicalize Frank Capra again with 1956's Clark Gable, filmed with ten times the budget but only half the entertainment value of Eve Knew Her Apples. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
