His Girl Friday 
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! Selected to be preserved at the National Film Preservation Board, USA. "Perhaps the funniest, certainly the fastest talkie comedy ever made." - Geoff Andrew, Time Out
Features Cary Grant, Ralph Bellamy, Rosalind Russell
