His Girl Friday - Sein Mädchen für besondere Fälle Regie Howard Hawks
The film doesn’t so much allow its female lead to overcome gender disparity as it compellingly shows how difficult it is to be a female journalist. And perhaps one of the reasons we continue to value the film as one of the best screwball comedies today is because Hildy’s portrayal still stings.

…Remarriage plots are the most grown-up variation, because these are the movies that say two people can be perfectly suited and still louse it up. Matching this device to The Front Page, so famous for its bite and cynicism, resulted in the most bracingly adult screwball comedy (and romance) of them all. Hawks and Lederer found a fresh spin on the remarriage comedy, making the question not how the wandering spouse will find her way home but how she’ll get back to work.

The contrast of two men’s deaths—and a woman’s suicide attempt—with a comedy of remarriage is gleefully, debauchedly callous: Hawks’s blitheness… has a tart edge, particularly when seen through the prism of our bleak contemporary political spectrum. His Girl Friday isn’t a dusty old classic; it’s alive and electric, ready to bite, a work of art that’s been paradoxically neutered in reputation by its justifiable acclaim.
