  • Directed by: Howard Hawks
  • Written by: Charles Lederer, Ben Hecht, Charles MacArthur
  • Cast: Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy, Gene Lockhart

Hawks' dynamic comedy is one of the best Hollywood ever made. Grant and Russell are simply fantastic as the sparring newspaper editor and top reporter drawing battlelines in their professional and personal lives. Hecht and MacArthur's script from their original play The Front Page, spits out a series of rapid-fire quips and cross-cutting gags, but allows the supporting characters to have their scene-stealing moments too. Don't miss it.
