Screwball to the max, from 1937. Copyright 2018 Library Journal.Review by Library Journal Reviews
A comic genius over decades. Copyright 2018 Library Journal.
In this Oscar-winning farce, Cary Grant and Irene Dunne exude charm and cunning as an urbane couple who, fed up with each other’s infidelities, resolve to file for divorce. Directed by the versatile Leo McCarey, The Awful Truth is a warm but unsparing comedy about two people whose flaws only make them more irresistible.
