Rating: 10/10 -- By switching the main character's gender and adding romantic sparks, Hawks turned the masterful, raucous Chicago newsroom farce The Front Page into the perfect screwball comedy. Full Review

Howard Hawks returned to the material and added a twist that made it all his own: he transformed the love-hate buddy comedy of dirty tricks into a delicious battle of the sexes. Full Review

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. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

In this whip-smart screwball comedy from revered director Howard Hawks, Cary Grant plays a desperate newspaper editor trying to keep his ace-reporter (and ex-wife) from leaving the job to marry someone else. Adapted from Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthurs Broadway smash The Front Page, the film features such stars as Ralph Bellamy, Gene Lockhart, and Rosalind Russell in a role originally written for a male.
