Extra Milestone – His Girl Friday (1940)

Here’s the big scoop! For our February Extra Milestone, we’re getting down and dirty with His Girl Friday, see. Directed by Howard Hawks and starring Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy (as himself?), and many others, we discuss how this 1940 film was made and what we think of it today, 80 years later.

Correction: In the episode, Sam incorrectly states that His Girl Friday is #40 on Empire’s “500 Greatest Films of All Time” list. It’s actually #58. Sam has been fully scolded for this error by his peers, but that doesn’t mean you should go easy on him.

  1. That opening bit reminds me of why I’ve been listening to you guys since the very beginning. Cheers everyone.

  2. When “Will Tyler” started talking normally in the beginning I starting cackling at my desk. So great.
