Eve Knew Her Apples Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Eve Knew Her Apples is an pinchpenny musical reworking of [[Performer~P84082~Frank Capra~frankcapra]]'s Oscar-winning [[Feature~V25509~It Happened One Night~ithappenedonenight]]. Musical star [[Performer~P49184~Ann Miller~annmiller]] takes over the [[Performer~P14003~Claudette Colbert~claudettecolbert]] role; this time she's not a runaway heiress but a runaway radio star, escaping her stuffy fiance rather than her autocratic father. [[Performer~P223888~William Wright~williamwright]] assumes the [[Performer~P10097~Clark Gable~clarkgable]] 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 [[Feature~V25509~It Happened One Night~ithappenedonenight]]'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 [[Feature~V25509~It Happened One Night~ithappenedonenight]] again with 1956's [[Feature~V117982~You Can't Run Away From It~youcantrunawayfromit]], filmed with ten times the budget but only half the entertainment value of Eve Knew Her Apples. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
