Plot & Details
Filmed in 1948, Swedish filmmaker Gustav Molander's Eva gained an American release the following year. The eponymous Eva, played by Eva Stiberg, is the cast-off girlfriend of headstrong railroad engineer Bo (Birger Malmsten). When Bo's new bride is killed in a train accident, he returns to faithful Eva. Out of tragedy blossoms a new life for both hero and heroine. Unlike such previous Molander protegees as Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman, Eva Stiberg did not go on to a particularly stellar career. Eva should not be confused with the 1962 French film of the same name, though both contain strikingly similar plot elements.
