Ever Since Eve is a romantic comedy film from 1937, directed by Lloyd Bacon, starring Marion Davies, Robert Montgomery, and Frank McHugh. The film follows the story of a young and ambitious newspaper reporter, DeWitt "Dewey" Phillips (Robert Montgomery), who is tasked with finding a "model girl" to turn into a celebrity overnight. Based on a suggestion from his colleague, Joe (Frank McHugh), he decides to choose the least likely candidate, a plain and unassuming stenographer named Marian Martin (Marion Davies).

Marian is not interested in fame or fortune, but she agrees to take on the challenge as a favor to her boss, Mr. Blake (Patti Brill). Dewey and his team transform Marian into a fashion icon, dubbed "Eve," and she becomes an instant sensation. As Eve, Marian is courted by wealthy men, including the debonair millionaire, George Howell (George Barbier), who falls in love with her.

However, Marian soon realizes that the fame and attention come at a price. She misses her simple life, and she is torn between her newfound celebrity status and her love for Dewey. Meanwhile, Dewey finds himself falling for Eve, not realizing that she is the same person as the unpretentious Marian he had first met.

As Marian's star continues to rise, Dewey sets out to expose her as a fraud, hoping to clear his conscience and win her back. But his plan backfires when Marian is hurt by his betrayal. Dewey realizes his mistake and tries to make amends by revealing his true feelings for her.

The movie is a typical romantic comedy of its time, with a predictable storyline and a happy ending. Marion Davies and Robert Montgomery deliver strong performances, but the real standout is Frank McHugh, who provides comic relief as the wisecracking Joe.

The film also showcases the lavish and glamorous lifestyle of the wealthy elite during the 1930s, with elegant costumes and impressive sets. The music, composed by Harry Warren and Mack Gordon, is catchy and upbeat, adding to the overall charm of the film.

Overall, Ever Since Eve is an enjoyable and lighthearted rom-com that is sure to entertain fans of classic Hollywood cinema. It is a film that showcases the talent of some of the most iconic actors of its time and provides a glimpse into a bygone era of glamour and sophistication.
