A newspaper editor played by Cary Grant meets his ex-wife/ex-star reporter's fiancee the day before they are set to be married. She says she will be happy to live a life where she will be treated like a real woman, not a news man. Grant spends the rest of the movie, which all takes place in one day, trying to lure Hildy back into the life they shared. Most of the movie takes place in the press room of a police station.

Running Time: 92 Minutes
MPAA Ratings: PG


Arguably the best (funniest) version of this Ben Hecht-Charles MacArthur (The Scoundrel (1935)) play "The Front Page", screenplay by Charles Lederer, this remake of the Lewis Milestone 1931 film stars Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell as a divorced couple who work together for a newspaper, Grant as its editor - Russell as his star reporter, until she wants to leave to get married to Ralph Bellamy (The Awful Truth (1937)). Her ex-husband then schemes to keep her, first professionally and then personally, with Bellamy cast in his familiar role as the one left holding the bag. Directed by Howard Hawks, and featuring a number of other recognizable character actors including: Gene Lockhart (Algiers (1938)), Porter Hall, Roscoe Karns, Regis Toomey, and John Qualen. Added to the National Film Registry in 1993. #19 on AFI's 100 Funniest Movies list. (


Hildy Johnson has divorced Walter Burns and visits his office to tell him that she is engaged to another man and that they are going to get married the day after. Walter Burns can't let that happen and frames the other man, Bruce Baldwin, for a lot of stuff getting him into trouble all the time, while he tries to steer Hildy back into her old job as his employee (editor of his newspaper). Written by Lars J. Aas

Walter Burns, editor of a major Chicago newspaper, is about to lose his ace reporter and former wife, Hildy Johnson, to insurance salesman Bruce Baldwin, but not without a fight! The crafty editor uses every trick in his fedora to get Hildy to write one last big story, about murderer Earl Williams and the inept Sheriff Hartwell. The comedy snowballs as William's friend, Molly Malloy, the crooked Mayor, and Bruce's mother all get tied up in Walter's web. Written by Steve Fenwick
