Movies for Valentines Day
His Girl Friday
If youve ever wondered what the big deal is about women and Cary Grant, then youve probably never seen His Girl Friday. One of the absolute classic screwball comedies of Hollywoods Golden Age, it was a definitive role for Grant as a hard boiled newspaper editor. Its actually fairly progressive, or at least tries to be, as beautiful star Rosalind Russell plays her reporter role vivaciously and plans to leave the scheming Grant behind her before getting caught up in the news story of the decade. The pair have a comic chemistry that has rarely been seen in the near 75 years since, and the movie moves so fast that you hardly have time to breathe. Every joke ever made about fast talking 1940s newspapermen had its source in this movie.
