His Girl Friday (1940)

Fire up His Girl Friday (29:57) Cover any sensitive ears. We swear a bit in this ‘un.

His Girl Friday

A comedy classic with Cary Grant & Rosalind Russell is #17 in the Next 100 Project. Even 76 years later, it’s sharp, funny and remarkably competent (Bev’s favourite word!). This is Howard Hawks’ best comedy (and that’s saying something). It might have some problems with tone though. Check out Sparkplug Coffee, then ignite the rat-a-tat rom-com!
