His Girl Friday (1940)
His Girl Friday features as part of our FEEL GOOD FILM FESTIVAL: Friday 8th – Sunday 17th October 2021
Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell star in His Girl Friday; a hilarious and chaotic, classic screwball comedy.
When hard-charging New York newspaper editor Walter Burns discovers that his ex-wife, investigative reporter Hildy Johnson, has gotten engaged to milquetoast insurance agent Bruce Baldwin, he unsuccessfully tries to lure her away from tame domestic life with a story about the impending execution of convicted murderer Earl Williams.
But when Hildy discovers Williams may be innocent, her reporter instincts take over.
“A fast talking screwball delight that remains the finest example of its genre” Empire ★★★★★
