The Front Page

Dirigida por Lewis Milestone
Estados Unidos, 1931
  • Inglés
  • Sin subtítulos


Hildy Johnson, un periodista, está comprometido con Peggy Grant y planea mudarse a Nueva York para conseguir un mejor trabajo como publicista. Para convencerlo de que se quede, su jefe le propone seguir el caso de un condenado a muerte que ha huido de prisión.

Por qué verla

Si el título te resulta familiar, se debe a que la obra escrita por Hecht y McArthur acabó por convertirse en el clásico His Girl Friday de Howard Hawks. Pero la divertida adaptación pre-code de Lewis Milestone—¡recientemente restaurada!—mantiene intactos los roles de género de la obra original.

Milestone’s The Front Page presents Hecht and MacArthur’s original play perfected yet still in the raw—with its male chauvinism and meanness as well as its gallantry in full view. These men may goad Molly Malloy nearly to her death, but they mostly laugh and cheer when Hildy kisses Jenny the scrubwoman and dances her out of the pressroom. This movie captures every bit of the remarkable texture that Hecht and MacArthur put into their play.

This phenomenally fast-moving early screwball comedy has for years circulated in theatrical prints of dubious quality, a situation to be hopefully changed by the arrival of a new 35mm restoration… Although the play has been adapted for cinema a number of times (most notably with Howard Hawks’s 1940 comedy of remarriage, His Girl Friday), this version is by far the spiciest.

Spiritual kin to SCARFACE (another Howard Hughes production) and Raoul Walsh’s contemporaneous cycle of urban proletariat scuzz, THE FRONT PAGE possesses an undeniable vulgar dynamism.
