About this item
This Triple Feature includes "The Awful Truth", "Born Yesterday" and "His Girl Friday". "The Awful Truth": Director Leo McCarey won an Oscar(R) and star Irene Dunne was nominated (one of her five Best Actress nominations) for "The Awful Truth", one of the most captivating screwball comedies ever made. A comic battlefield presided over by two superbly-matched sparring partners, "The Awful Truth" also stars Cary Grant as the other half of a couple facing divorce and fighting over custody of their beloved dog, Mr. Smith. Somewhere before the final divorce decree, however, Jerry decides he wants Lucy back, only to learn that she's marrying a country bumpkin (hilariously played by Ralph Bellamy). Jerry counters with an engagement to the aristocratic Molly Lamont, sparking a sexy, sophisticated battle of wits that ranks among the wackiest comedies in screen history. "Born Yesterday": Judy Holliday won the 1950 Best Actress Oscar(R) for her brilliant and funny role as Billie Dawn, the dumb blonde girlfriend of Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford), a corrupt millionaire junk dealer. Brock, a man with social ambitions and a willingness to do anything to fulfill them, is embarrassed by Billie's crass behavior and lack of social sophistication. So he arranges for her to take a crash course in culture from a handsome, young journalist (William Holden). Billie blossoms under his kind tutelage and becomes increasingly aware of her role as a pawn in Brock's crooked business deals. Brock is surprised and outraged when Billie suddenly refuses to cooperate any longer. This is a classic with unforgettable performances. "His Girl Friday": A classic screwball comedy in which Russell plays reporter Hildy Johnson, who, on the eve of her remarriage, is talked into one more assignment by her editor and ex-husband, Grant. While interviewing a condemned man, Hildy realizes that his hanging is planned as a vote-getting measure. Spontaneously, she helps the man escape.
