THE AWFUL TRUTH: In one of the supreme screwball comedies, young husband and wife Jerry and Lucy (Cary Grant and Irene Dunne), each suspicious that the other is having an affair, start divorce proceedings and see each other only when Jerry visits their dog, who is held in joint custody. The wonderful Leo McCarey directed THE AWFUL TRUTH, which was based on the 1922 play by Arthur Richman. HIS GIRL FRIDAY: In Howard Hawks's screwball masterpiece adapted from the stage play THE FRONT PAGE by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, star reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), once married to suave editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant), plans to leave the stressful newspaper world behind and marry a boring insurance agent. Walter won't reveal his feelings for Hildy but tries to keep her from leaving by convincing her to cover one last story, a politically motivated execution. Then the convict manages to escape, and Hildy finds herself working alongside Walter to break the story wide open. HIS GIRL FRIDAY is a loose, freewheeling gem featuring some of the fastest dialogue ever filmed (peppered with inspired ad-libbing by Grant and Russell, each appearing at comedic high points in their careers). HOLIDAY: Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant team up in this classic George Cukor comedy about love that finally finds its mark. Johnny (Grant) has just met the girl of his dreams, so he proposes; she happily accepts. However, he soon discovers that his lovely bride-to-be, Julia (Doris Nolan), comes from a wealthy Park Avenue family, with a father who likes to make all the decisions and whom she seems incapable of defying. Her unconventional sister, Linda (Hepburn), knows she wants something different from a mapped-out life; she also discovers she's falling in love with Johnny. ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS: Geoff Carter (Cary Grant) is the head of a crumbling air freight service that's in desperate need of a replacement pilot. He is forced to hire a discredited aviator (Richard Barthelmess...

    I count myself among the many fans Cary Grant left and this collection contains some of his lesser known, but quite excellent movies. First, "Holiday" is a delightful comedy that again reveals the chemistry between Grant and Katharine Hepburn. Next, "His Girl Friday" is a fast paced romp that will merit rewatching. I guarantee you catch some dialogue you missed the first go round, including the reference to Archie Leach (an inside joke to Grant fans). "The Awful Truth" is another fun romantic comedy. Be sure to notice Asta the Dog is featured here. If you are fan of older movies you will recognize Asta as the hardest working dog in this era. He also acted in Bringing Up Baby and in the Thin Man movies. Asta is a common crossword clue. "Only Angels Have Wings" is a bit more of a drama than the others, but quite enjoyable. I confess I have not yet watched "Talk of the Town", but am anxious to do so.All in all this is an outstanding collection and a good value.
