ATTPAC Sunset Screenings: His Girl Friday
AT&T Performing Arts Center will present His Girl Friday as part of their free Sunset Screenings list. Walter Burns (Cary Grant), editor of a major Chicago newspaper, is about to lose his ace reporter and former wife, Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), to insurance salesman Bruce Baldwin (Ralph Bellamy), but not without a fight. The crafty editor uses every trick in his fedora to get Hildy to write one last big story, about murderer Earl Williams and the inept Sheriff Hartwell. The comedy snowballs as William’s friend, Molly Malloy, the crooked Mayor, and Bruce’s mother all get tied up in Walter’s web. Howard Hawks directs Cary Grant in this classic romantic comedy.
