HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940)
One of the greatest screwball comedies. Firecracker dialogue with actors about to explode. Cary Grant is a joy to behold. Howard Hawks' range extends to just about every genre. It's simply ridiculous how fast-paced this movie is. Russell holds her own (and some!) next to Grant. In fact, I can never decide who to look at when they are both on screen.
Director: Howard Hawks
