Cary Grant Film Festival presents

His Girl Friday

Dir: Howard Hawks; 92 mins, U (1940)

Sun 25 November 2018 // 12:30

Tickets: £8/£5 conc (+ £1.50 booking fee)

Hawks chose to cast a woman (Rosalind Russell) as one of the lead characters in his screen adaptation of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s smash hit comedy play, The Front Page, and made her newly divorced from her boss (Cary Grant). What results is an exuberant mix of hard-boiled newsroom drama, hilarious wisecracks and ebullient romantic comedy that fully exploits its stars’ onscreen chemistry and perfect comic timing.  Introduced by freelance journalist, author and film critic Pamela Hutchinson. Part of BFI Comedy Genius - a nationwide season of classic comedy films, supported by funds from the National Lottery and led by Film Hub Midlands on behalf of the BFI UK Film Audience Network. #BFICOMEDYGENIUS
