This Friday, May 29., we will be watching “His Girl Friday”, and reading chapter 5 of Cavell’s book:
HIS GIRL FRIDAY
Directed by: Howard Hawks
Starring: Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell
Walter Burns, editor of a major Chicago newspaper, is about to lose his ace reporter and former wife, Hildy Johnson, to insurance salesman Bruce Baldwin, but not without a fight! The crafty editor uses every trick in his fedora to get Hildy to write one last big story, about murderer Earl Williams and the inept Sheriff Hartwell. The comedy snowballs as William’s friend, Molly Malloy, the crooked Mayor, and Bruce’s mother all get tied up in Walter’s web.
