His Girl Friday may be the fastest-paced dialogue movie ever made, as well as the greatest remake. Howard Hawks took a good original – The Front Page – turned one of the reporters into a woman, and with that move opened a whole new level of meaning and comedy. It didn’t hurt that he also cast Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell as newspaper editor Walter Burns and ace reporter Hildy Johnson. Simply one of the greatest comedies.
DIRECTOR: Howard Hawks
