Movie Info

In this romance, a humble hatcheck girl finds herself suddenly betrothed to a multimillionaire when he requires a substitute for his real fiance after he receives word that his ailing father is to soon expire. The old man's last wish is to meet his son's fiancee. Unfortunately, the real betrothed is not there and hence the temporary substitution. The trouble comes when the father recovers and regains his health. The old fellow has also become attached to the hatcheck girl. Naturally this creates problems between the son and his real intended.

Critic Reviews for It Started with Eve

All Critics (1)

Comedy of a kind that doesn't get made any more (probably due to a lack of actors who can pull off this sort of thing).
