Got this film languishing in my collection for long.. Should watch it soon. smile.gif

This is one fine film..another gem from the duo.. smile1.gif





I am afraid, I am going to compare the three versions...raunchier and maybe more cynical... this one is my favorite. The Front Page...

Madhavi..that is right. Front page is a taut film with almost the entire movie happening in a small room...Enjoyed it thoroughly. smile.gif

Here is one classic novel turned movie..marking the debut of an icon !

I'll also compare and I'm afraid disagree with you Madhavi. His Girl Friday was a brilliant and groundbreaking film in terms of comedy, dialogue delivery and direction. And Grant was brilliant.

I was waiting for somebody to disagree with me... dry.gif


I know Rosalind's role was inspired, and the dialogues make you huff n puff, and Grant is dazzling... so is the movie...which is precisely why I prefer the less frenetic pace of this one...after that incredible re"definitive" pairing... Wilder goes back to the original, with bulkier, aging actors and makes it edgier and darker and it is still a comedy. I do agree with you about His Girl Friday being far more path-breaking than Wilder's version but if you view the two films chronologically, it to me seems a relevant recalibration of the satire.

Yes... a gentler comedy... I find it very appealing...Garbo does not strike a false note... a tall order with that tag line weighing you down...

The clues make it pretty obvious - Wit (2001). This is a highly regarded made for TV film, which is not surprising given that the director was Mike Nichols - director of acclaimed classics like The Graduate and Heartburn...

Talking of Cary Grant,

Identify his movie which had the tagline,

YOU CAN EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED WHEN THEY PLAY.

Best Regards
Hildebrand


Samandar ko Baandhe Aisa Koi Ghaat Nahi, Kadmon ko thaame aisi koi baat nahin Patli si dhaara samundar mein milti hai, milkar ke kho jaati hai, ghaat ghaat hi rehte hain woh samundar ho jaati hai, karlo jo chaaho, banlo jo chaaho

“Geet boodhe nahin hote, unke chehron pe jhurriyan nahi girti
wo palte rahte hain, chalte rahte hain
sun-ne walo ki umra badal jaati hai….”
