You should probably listen to this episode on 2x speed just to get a feeling for what it's like to watch Howard Hawks's 1940 screwball romance His Girl Friday, starring Cary Grant and Marc's third cousin, Rosalind Russell!
Join in as we discuss justifications for murder, The Front Page, Kalloch's iconic costume designs, comic sneezes, and the dark age of journalism.
Plus: How does His Girl Friday compare to other screwball comedies? How did Russell fix her underwritten character? Do all newspapers have thieves on payroll? And what's Molly Molloy's deal, anyway?
