So today i am honoring one of my favorite actors all time Cary Grant for the Cary Grant Blogathon which is hosted by phyllislovesclassicmovies. So thanks to the wonderful host of this Blogathon for hosting it as i would also be sure to check out other posts form it. So today i am reviewing my girl Friday in honor of Cary grant. When hard-charging New York newspaper editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant) discovers that his ex-wife, investigative reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), has gotten engaged to milquetoast insurance agent Bruce Baldwin (Ralph Bellamy), he unsuccessfully tries to lure her away from tame domestic life with a story about the impending execution of convicted murderer Earl Williams. But when Hildy discovers Williams may be innocent, her reporter instincts take over.(goggle story info)
His girl Friday review
It’s madcap all right as there is no better people then Grant and Russell, who make a great team together on the screen. It’s truly fine acting by both of the duo as they have great comic timing and wit that brings both their roles to the screen in such a wonderful way. The film’s supporting cast is no less impressive, with every single role cast to perfection as all of them truly shine in their respective roles on the screen. Its truly fine acting by everyone in this wonderful cast of talents.Howard hawks was truly a wonderful director that crafts out such a wonderful tale with such wonderful wit and timing that is comedy gold to watch unfold on the screen. My Girl Friday successfully combines screwball romantic comedy with biting satire that truly makes it the true comedy classic.
The Ruth rating:
What does it take to be a leading man. You have to have a sense of humor about yourself. Cary Grant truly had an image that was always something truly one of a kind. He was a true movie star. It was always so easy for Cary grant to anything in his moves. I truly want to be like Cary grant but cannot match him sadly. He truly is one of the finest actors all time. So glad to honor him.
