His Girl Friday
Cary Grant stars as a newspaper editor keen to keep his ex-wife – and star reporter – close by.
Dir Howard Hawks
With Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy, Gene Lockhart
Howard Hawks’ masterpiece sees Grant as a newspaper editor who makes a play to win back his ex-wife (Russell), who also happens to be his best reporter. He engineers one last job for her, covering a story about a wrongly convicted inmate on death row – thus sabotaging her plans to move away and marry another. His Girl Friday is as dark as can be, yet also funny, fresh and rewarding.
