description

One of the fastest, funniest, and most quotable filmsever made,His Girl Fridaystars Rosalind Russell as reporter Hildy Johnson,a standout among cinema’s powerful women. Hildy is matched in force only by her conniving but charismatic editor and ex-husband, Walter Burns (played by the peerless Cary Grant), who dangles the chance for her to scoop her fellow news writers with the story of an impending execution in order to keep her from hopping the train that’s supposed to take her to Albany and a new life as a housewife. When adapting Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s smash hit playThe Front Page,director Howard Hawks had the inspired idea of turning star reporter Hildy Johnson into a woman, and the result isan immortal mixof hard-boiled newsroom setting with ebullient remarriage comedy.Also presented here is a brand-new restoration of the 1931film The Front Page,Lewis Milestone’s famous pre-Code adaptation of the same material.
