2nd Annual Great Jersey City Clean Up "His Girl Friday" PLUS Organ Concert for FREE at Loew's to celebrate the Jersey Journal
Admission is FREE.

To celebrate its 150th Anniversary, The Jersey Journal -- the Loew's hometown newspaper -- wants to give everyone a really neat gift: a fun evening at the Loew's FOR FREE.

On Saturday, April 29 starting at 7:30PM, enjoy a performance on the Loew's Wonder Organ by Nathan Avakian --one of the youngest and most celebrated artists playing theatre organs in our time! And following that . . .'

"His Girl Friday" starring Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy. Directed by Howard Hawks. 1940, 92 mins, B&W. Screened in 35mm.

“His Girl Friday” has on of the fastest, most cleverly constructed scripts of any comedy of the 1930s/early ‘40s, with kaleidoscope action, instantaneous plot twists, and overlapping dialogue. And if you listen closely, you'll even hear a couple of "in" jokes, such as one concerning Cary Grant's real name (Archie Leach).

At the time, “His Girl Friday” was also rather groundbreaking cinema for the portrayal of a woman as a hard-charging, intelligent and thoroughly professional reporter.

Conniving newspaper editor Walter Burns and star reporter Hildy Johnson have a decidedly symbiotic professional relationship that Hildy is about to break-up by getting married and quitting. For his part, however, Walter is prepared to do almost anything to prevent that from happening. The ace up Walter's sleeve is late-breaking news concerning the impending execution of anarchist Earl Williams (John Qualen) that lays bare blatant political chicanery – the kind of story Walter knows Hildy the consummate reporter can't pass up.

But for this second, and arguably best movie version of the hit comedy/thriller play "The Front Page", legendary director Howard Hawks put one more twist into the proceedings: Hildy the hard charging reporter is a woman -- in the considerable persona of Rosalind Russell, who was then entering her prime as an archetype of the energetic, ambitious woman. And Walter the editor is also Hildy’s ex-husband, played by Cary Grant with his trademark blend of cheerful nonchalance and devilish manipulation. In doing this, Hawks added a scintillating battle of the sexes to the already very funny story. And if anything, this version makes the original’s barbs about political corruption, the courts, and freedom of the press even sharper.
