Stop the presses and laugh it up with Howard Hawks' 1940 screwball classic, His Girl Friday. Prior to the screening there will be a thirty minute lecture by screenwriter, researcher, and television professional Theo Siegel.
Walter Burns (Cary Grant) is an irresistibly conniving newspaper publisher desperate to woo back his paper's star reporter, Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell) who also happens to be his estranged wife. She's threatening to quit and settle down with a new beau, but, as Walter knows, she has a weakness: she can't resist a juicy scoop.
Celebrated for its fast-paced, overlapping comedic dialogue, His Girl Friday is a gut-busting pinnacle of screwball mania.
