In this undeniable gem of Hollywood's golden age, Walter (Cary Grant), a hard-boiled newspaper editor, discovers that his ex-wife and former employee, Hildy (Rosalind Russell), is set to marry a wet-blanket insurance salesman (Ralph Bellamy). 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. Featuring some of the fastest dialogue ever, His Girl Friday is a high-energy screwball Rom-Com filled with brilliant comic timing. Don’t miss it!
