His Girl Friday (1940) - Cary Grant Colorized Version DVD
His Girl Friday (1940)
Considered by many to be the best of Howard Hawks' comedies (Bringing Up Baby, I Was A Male War Bride), His Girl Friday was adapted from Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's oft-filmed Broadway smash "The Front Page," with a screenplay by Charles Lederer. Hawks changed the sex of one of the amle leads, and revamped the spoof of newspapers and news hounds into a hilarious and sophisticated battle of the sexes and battle of the exes. When ace reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell, never better) announces she's leaving the newspaper world behind to settle into domesticity with a stuffy fiance (Ralph Bellamy), her demanding editor and ex-husband Walter Burns (Cary Grant) is determined to keep her on staff and win back her heart in the process.
