Not to decry the current state of the film industry, but they sure don’t make ‘em like this anymore. Howard Hawks’ screwball comedy His Girl Friday is whip smart, hilarious, and quite forward thinking for the year 1940. Grant plays a hard-boiled editor for The Morning Post who decides to sabotage the impending nuptials of ex-wife and former star reporter Hildegrard “Hildy” Johnson (Rosalind Russell) by assigning her one last story: the upcoming execution of a convicted murderer. Delightful chaos ensues with crackerjack timing and an irresistible performance by Russell. Like a warm blanket, His Girl Friday is inviting, comforting, and just plain swell. – Adam Chitwood
