THE AWFUL TRUTH (1937)
May 11, 2013 - 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
THE AWFUL TRUTH directed by Leo McCarey with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne.
A sparring couple on the brink of divorce learn the truth about love and marriage….the awful truth!!!! Super comedic direction and 1930s pizazz make this a comedy pip, and oh that charming onscreen chemistry from the leads: Cary Grant gives looks of love at his c-star that could make anyone melt, and you haven’t lived till you’ve heard Irene Dunne try to sing “Home on the Range.” Its sophistication convinced the Academy that this film was more than just a comedy, and they awarded McCarey the Oscar for Best Director.
“one of the funniest screwball comedies, and also one of the most serious at heart” — Chicago Reader
