Film Screening: His Girl Friday
In this screwball comedy, ace reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell) visits the office of her ex-husband, newspaper editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant), to inform him of her upcoming wedding to another man. Burns, desperate to win back his ex-wife, suggests that the pair cover one last story together. The two find themselves involved in an entangled murder case in this 1940 film. Directed by Howard Hawks, the film is based on the 1928 play The Front Page; it was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 1993. This screening will take place in the Community Room and simultaneously streamed over Zoom; for links, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
