A reporter helps a condemned man escape. "His Girl Friday" is even better than the very good original, "Front Page". Howard Hawks and Cary Grant have rarely handled comedy better, and Rosalind Russell gives one of her most memorable performances. Grant stars as Walter Burns, a newspaper editor whose top reporter, Hildy Johnson (Russell), is leaving the paper to get married. Walter wants her to stay in order to cover the impending execution of a convicted murderer, but Hildy refuses, leading to a continuing battle of wits between them. Hanks was always interested in what makes the professional tick. Almost all of his films touched on this theme in one way or another.
