Howard Hawks was probably the most versatile director of his era, capable of making such distinct films as Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Each is technically a comedy, but each is vastly different from each other. Baby being a slapstick-centric screwball comedy with Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn throwing themselves into their roles head-over-feet. Friday being a... read more

A good movie

I already saw this movie but it was ages ago and I didn’t remember it at all so I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, I’m glad I gave it a 2nd chance since I was much more able to enjoy this time around. Indeed, first of all, I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of such classic screwball comedies, in fact, it was probably the first one I have ever saw almost 20 years... read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1950's) (100 movies items)

" Notes: I have to admit that I have never been a huge fan of such classic screwball comedies, in fact, it was probably the first one I have ever saw almost 20 years ago which might explain why I didn’t connect with the damned thing the first time I saw it. Anyway, sure, it is actually a really silly story but that’s why it’s actually quite fun because no one involved actually took the damned thing seriously. The cast was also pitch-perfect (Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, Marilyn Monroe). Sure"
