AUGUST SCREENING: HIS GIRL FRIDAY
A newspaper editor uses every trick in the book to keep his ace reporter ex-wife from remarrying, in Howard Hawks’ HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940), a fast-paced, hysterically funny comedy starring Cary Grant. This brilliant film marked the beginning of a number of screwball comedies in the 1940s that emphasized the conflict for women in deciding between marriage and professional careers.
Special guest film critic Brad Mariano from 4:3 Magazine will be giving a 15 minute "expert intro" about Hollywood screwball comedies such as HIS GIRL FRIDAY and their legacies today.
“No newsroom has ever been so dazzling, no whipsmart dialogue sharper than that between Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant. No film – or newspaper office – has ever brimmed with such excitement, romance and wit." - The Guardian
