The Awful Truth

"Excellent"

The Awful Truth Review


The print may be fading, but the comedy is solid. Cary Grant rules in this classic of the screwball comedy genre, but the dog steals the show. With Irene Dunne as his estranged wife, boy loses girl then tries to get girl back in one of the best comedies of its era (the 1930s). Grant's antics are hysterical.
