Cary Grant plays a scheming newspaper editor, bound and determined to keep his star reporter (Rosalind Russell) from marrying and leaving his employ. As handled by top director Howard Hawks, the dialogue is fast and clever, and the film moves at a whirlwind pace. If you have never seen this fast, frantic and funny film, do yourself a favor and come join the fun.
