His Girl Friday
This classic film, generally considered the jewel of romantic screwball comedies, stars Cary Grant as a newspaper editor, who schemes to win back his best reporter and former wife played by Rosalind Russell. Cheeky and exhilaratingly paced, this film is full of slapstick, witty repore and unforgettable one-liners.
Leatherheads, a movie that plays like a zany 1930s comedy, is in fact a thinly disguised message film about commerce and the corruption of professional sports. From quick pacing to rapid banter between a spunky reporter (Renee Zelwegger) and an aging football star (George Clooney), Leatherheads is filled with period pleasures.
