HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940)
Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant month (Film 9 of 14)
His Girl Friday
Many consider this remake of The Front Page superior to the original with the two reporters from that play/movie changed to an ex-married couple (Cary and Rosalind Russell). Ralph Bellamy is on hand once again to provide someone to lose the girl to Grant. The pace of this one is brisk, to say the least, and one of the most enjoyable to watch of the Grant screwball comedies. It does seem interesting that it is Russell that carries a lot of the movie in many of the middle scenes film that Grant doesn't appear in.
