His Girl Friday 1940

From Amazon: The Front Page, Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur's classic 1928 newspaper play, has had three official film versions and contributed structural DNA to half the movies ever made about professional camaraderie and fierce love-hate friendships. Lewis Milestone's 1931 movie is well respected (Billy Wilder's 1974 version isn't), but this is one case where the remake towers brilliantined head and blocked shoulders above the original. Howard Hawks had the inspired notion of making Hildy Johnson--the ace newsman whom demonic editor Walter Burns is trying to keep from quitting and getting married--a she instead of a he.

His Girl Friday Movie Review by Movie Addict (6/4/2007)

Ben Hecht's The Front Page has been made three times as far as I know.
Billy Wilder's version is better that the original, and certainly
better than the other four versions, but not better that this one

His Girl Friday Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/11/2007)

The best screwball comedy of all time is all about a divorced couple who are reunited for a story and find they still have that certain sparkle.

Rosaline Russell and Cary Grant play off one another like the old pros they are and you see why they would become so frustrated with one another, but alos why they cannot be...
