Cary Grant - The Awful Truth 1937

The Awful Truth - Released October 21, 1937. Directed by Leo McCarey

A misunderstanding between two devoted married people (Cary Grant and Irene Dunn) lands the pair in a divorce action which quickly degenerates into a war with each partner working fervently to wreck the others attempts at a new life and romance. At first the battle is over the custody of their pet dog, but eventually everything is game, and the obvious questions comes up: how can two people work so hard at torpedoing a divorce each claim they desperately want?

Comedy highlights are tailored for each star, in particular Irene Dunne's character is shown going to unusual lengths (pretending to be Cary's sister) and in this way Dunne gets to play at impersonation much in the same way that she excelled in Theodora Goes Wild (1936). Grant gets to practice looking aghast, something that he utilized in many other films (for example Bringing Up Baby, 1938). Director McCarey Has a lot of fun destroying a perfectly good divorce, and his comedy skills aren't by accident - he was the director on what many consider the Marx Brothers best film Duck Soup (1933.)
