Craziness abounds in this classic re-working of the original 1930 film version of the Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur uproarious newspaper farce, The Front Page. Hildy is played with a neat twist by Rosalind Russell, who makes the mistake of returning to the office to tell her former husband and boss, editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant), that she is leaving the newspaper business to marry an insurance salesman (Ralph Bellamy). This screwball comedy classic deservedly has the reputation of being “the fastest farce on celluloid.” -Corinth Films
