In this undeniable gem of Hollywood's golden age, Walter, a hard-boiled newspaper editor, discovers that his ex-wife and former employee, Hildy, is set to marry a wet-blanket insurance salesman. Walter, certain that this is the wrong move for a strong-willed and ambitious woman such as Hildy, decides to sabotage her marital plans by enticing her with one last story--the execution of a convicted murderer. A classic of the Screwball Rom-Com genre, HIS GIRL FRIDAY delivers the quick wit - and quicker dialogue - that only a pair like Hollywood legends Cary Grant and Rosalind Russel can!
