CLASSICS: His Girl Friday

Columbia and Sony

Front Row Classics is closing out February with the legendary screwball comedy, His Girl Friday. Brandon and Eric are joined by Beyond the Mouse's Brett Rutherford & Vanessa Ferguson as they breakdown this hilarious, newsroom comedy. The crew discusses the palpable chemistry between Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell as well as the rapid-fire dialogue which demands repeat viewings. The discussion also focuses on early feminist representation in the character of Hildy Johnson.
