His Girl Friday

Cary “devil may care” Grant and the “ravishing” Rosalind Russell let sparks fly in this 1940s romantic comedy from Howard Hawks (The Big Sleep), considered by the original theatrical trailer as “a companion hit to Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” The story follows Grant as the editor of a New Yrok newspaper chain as he tries to prevent his ex-wife – a crack-hot reporter played by Russell – from marrying a straight-laced insurance agent (who still lives with his mother).

It's a miraculous balancing act from Hawks, who keeps death-row drama bleeding under the movie's screwball skin to give this frantic battle of the sexes a fiendishly dark sophistication.

One is tempted to throw away any semblance of persuasion and simply demand that you go see this movie.

It takes you by the scruff of the neck in the first reel and it shakes you madly, bellowing hoarsely... Before it's over you don't know whether you have been laughing or having your ears boxed.
