|His Girl Friday - DVD|
Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy
As a flawed and utterly irresistable newspaper editor, Cary Grant lets loose his funny side in this madcap romantic comedy about an erstwhile couple who meet, fall in love, fall out of love, and finally fall in love again. Along the way, we're treated to zany antics involving a wedding, an escaped convict, outragious schemes and it's all told in a fast paced story that simply crackles with wit and sharp dialog. Considered by many to be the prototypical romantic comedy, this film (which also stars Rosalind Russell in a tour de force performance every bit the equal of Grant) has exacted a lasting influence and remains every bit as enjoyable as the day it debuted in 1940.
Directed by Howard Hawks ('The Big Sleep', 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes').
