His Girl Friday

Sunday afternoon classics is quickly becoming a tradition here at ComedyandPolitics. Today's installment is His Girl Friday, a screwball comedy from 1940 starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell and directed by Howard Hawkes, and is also, in this blog's opinion, one of the greatest movies ever made.

When Hildy (Russell) returns to Walter Burns' (Grant) office to tell him she's getting remarried, he has no choice but to try to stop her. They're divorced, but Burns is still in love with her, and he knows she's in love with him too. She just needs some convincing.
