His Girl Friday (1940)
DIR: Howard Hawks
A great, fast-paced screwball comedy starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. Hildy Johnson (Russell), having divorced Walter Burns (Grant), goes to visit his office to tell him that she is engaged to another man and will be marrying him the next day. Walter Burns can’t let that happen so he frames her fiance, at the same time trying to get his ex-wife to come back and return to her old job as the editor for his newspaper.
Although it’s arguably one of the best screwball comedies ever made, it never actually received any Academy Award nominations.
