Adam and Evelyne *** for Maturing Young Lady
It all basically began with Adam and Eve. We've seen the young, innocent girl maturing into the young lady and falling in love with the older man in "My Fair Lady," and "Gigi." This is basically the same story in "Adam and Evelynne."

When Stewart Granger's friend dies, he takes his daughter in. The latter, Jean Simmons, believes that Granger is his father until she is told otherwise by Granger's girlfriend who senses Simmons as future competition. That sense proves correct when Simmons returns from finishing school in Switzerland all grown up. Problem is that Granger has never told her his true vocation: illegal gambling.

The story unfolds how they fall in love and the eventual treachery of his girlfriend and younger brother to destroy him over this love.

The film is nicely done. Jean Simmons goes from an unhappy child, looking for her father to the mature young woman searching for love.
