His Girl Friday
Another hilarious Cary Grant picture, His Girl Friday is a very interesting look at the lives and drives of journalists. Though the view of a newsroom is fairly stereotypical in this film, the news-gathering process is depicted with humor and light mocking. This film borders on slapstick, yet it keeps that witty dialogue and the clever double-entendres that make earlier pictures so delightful. It also portrays Rosalind Russell as a beautiful, strong, working woman who never loses her journalistic touch.
