About the Movie
A classic screwball comedy in which Russell plays reporter Hildy Johnson, who, on the eve of her remarriage, is talked into one more assignment by her editor and ex-husband, Grant. While interviewing a condemned man, Hildy realizes that his hanging is planned as a vote-getting measure. Spontaneously, she helps the man escape.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It takes you by the scruff of the neck in the first reel and it shakes you madly, bellowing hoarsely the. while, for the remaining six or seven. Before it's over you don't know whether you have been laughing or having your ears boxed.
Fresh: Casting is excellent, with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in the top roles.
Fresh: The movie bears reviewing because there's always something new in the confetti of one-liners, while its depiction of the Fourth Estate remains relevant.
Fresh: Cary Grant's performance is truly virtuoso -- stunning technique applied to the most challenging material.
Great movie but...
…all of the transfers I have seen for this movie are horrible! Hope someone will comment of the quality of the iTunes version. The trailer doesn't help because it does not reflect what you're going to download.
You should definatly buy this!
I can't believe they have this movie! Itunes is getting better, ANYTHING with Carry Grant is clearly a winner. This comedy is awesome, but you may need to take a breath or two before you watch this movie, it's a bit fast pace. Actually it's very high pace!
Fast paced comedy at its best!
This is definitely the best version of "The Front Page" ever done. The patter between Grant and Russell is incredible and non-stop. A must-see!
