His Girl Friday

United States | 1940 | Howard Hawks

His Girl Friday

In one of the greatest newspaper movies ever made (and certainly the funniest), Cary Grant plays a conniving newspaper editor who will do anything to win back his star reporter (and ex-wife) before she marries a boring insurance salesman and moves away. He starts by convincing her to do one last story—on a convicted murderer scheduled for imminent execution—and soon all hell breaks loose! This breathless, hilarious screwball comedy has been called “perhaps the funniest, certainly the fastest, talkie comedy ever made” (Time Out Film Guide). With Rosalind Russell and Ralph Bellamy. Before the film a member of Newspaper Guild Local One will speak briefly about the “Save The Plain Dealer“ campaign.
