His Girl Friday (1940)
Rapid-fire dialogue and memorable performances highlight director Howard Hawks' screwball revamping of the Ben Hecht/Charles MacArthur stage hit "The Front Page." Cary Grant stars as a crafty newspaper editor who plans to keep his ex-wife and former ace reporter (Rosalind Russell) from marrying a boring insurance salesman (Ralph Bellamy) by getting her to cover the exciting story surrounding a convicted murderer's execution. With Alma Kruger, Gene Lockhart. 92 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
