Hildy (Rosalind Russell) to Walter (Cary Grant): You’re wonderful, in a loathsome sort of way.
The normal rate of dialogue delivery in a movie has been estimated at 90 words per minute. In His Girl Friday (1940), the extraordinary verbal sparring between Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell has been clocked at 240 wpm. His Girl Friday is one of the best screwball comedies of all time, imbued with rapid-fire wit and inexhaustible energy.
Grant is unstoppable, and, as for Russell and her superb comic timing, it’s hard to imagine an actress other than her who could have lived up to him. This was the second screen version of Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s popular stage play, The Front Page, brilliantly directed by Howard Hawks, who, in a moment of inspiration, decided that the Hildy Johnson character would work better as a woman. And so it does.
These conversation-starting postcards are a classic addition to the home of any serious film lover. The postcard size is perfect to create a gallery wall or display on a shelf, or as a thoughtful gift for someone dear who loves the classics (not just the movies). This size fits into ready made frames.
