 His-Girl-FridayWalter Burns, the 14editor of a major Chicago newspaper, is about to lose his ace reporter and former wife, Hildy Johnson, to insurance salesman Bruce Baldwin, but not without a fight!

The crafty editor uses every trick in his fedora to get Hildy to write one last big story, about murderer Earl Williams and the inept Sheriff Hartwell.

The comedy snowballs as William’s friend, Molly Malloy, the crooked Mayor, and Bruce’s mother all get tied up in Walter’s web.

Howard Hawks directs Cary Grant and Rosalind Russel in this classic screwball comedy.
