His Girl Friday (U)

His Girl Friday

In this third offering of remastered Comedy Genius from the BFI, a newspaper editor uses every trick in the book to keep his ace reporter ex-wife from remarrying.


With Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in the leading roles trading whip-smart put-downs and wisecracks at breakneck speed, the movie’s reputation as the fastest-talking comedy in Hollywood history is well deserved. Howard Hawk’s film is about attraction, ambition and work, and hasn’t lost its gloss even after 78 years - it’s funny, and not in that appreciative-titter “Ah, that was the Golden Age” way. The movie bears reviewing because there is always something new in the confetti of one-liners, while its depiction of journalism remains relevant: “Take Hitler and stick him on the funny page! . . . Keep the rooster story - that’s human interest.”

USA 1940 Howard Hawks 92m
