The Awful Truth
Dir. Leo McCarey (1937). The great Irene Dunne brought warmth, beauty and expert timing to all her roles, and here she's ideally matched with Cary Grant as a couple on the verge of divorce involved in a custody battle over their pet terrier. Rich with wit, this is one of the more cunning screwball comedies of the 1930s.
