Quintessential fast talking comedy, and one of the most quotable films in cinema history, Howard Hawks’ adaptation of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s smash hit play The Front Page sees the director make the unprecedented move of changing the role of the star reporter to a woman. Rosalind Russell’s reporter Hildegard “Hildy” Johnson enjoys some electric chemistry and brilliant comic dialogue with co-star Cary Grant, resulting in an immortal mix of hard-boiled newsroom drama and buoyant romantic comedy.
Cast: Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy
Director: Howard Hawks
