‘His Girl Friday’ Movie Summary
Sharp-shooter newspaper editor, Walter Burns, gets a visit from his ex-wife and star reporter, Hildy Johnson. On this occasion, she visits the news office to report she’s forsaking journalism, and marry a boring insurance salesman the very next day. They plan to move to upstate New York for the quieter life. Burns uses broad scope, cunning, tricks and sabotage to halt her newlywed plans; offering her a scoop she can’t refuse. Against the unlikely backdrop of a cop killer’s execution hilarity ensues! It’s on for young and old with an ending you may or may not see coming a kilometer away. Rapid fire comedic quips manipulate the ears; triggering my hard to tap sense of humor, and going straight to the heart. Essentially His Girl Friday is a true-love romp.Read the full summary
