director Howard Hawks
I love His Girl Friday. Back in film school, I wound up seeing it multiple times as part of a class that I was TA’ing. But it had been a long while.
The kids hadn’t seen it. They really liked it a lot.
Cary Grant and Rosiland Russell are superb in Howard Hawks’ rattatat machine gun dialogue, snappier and funnier and faster than you can shake a stick at. Ralph Bellamy is also hilarious as the squarest square in all of Albany, NY.
Screwball comedy at its sharpest.
