Screwball boilerplate from Howard Hawks and Cary Grant, who plays a newspaper editor whose ex-wife and star reporter (Rosalind Russell) is threatening to marry a straitlaced insurance salesman. But Cary ain't having it, so he proceeds to destroy the couple's lives in order to prove that he still loves his ex. In the ’40s, they called it love. Today they call it stalking. This film is the finest hour for all involved, and is near the pinnacle of American cinematic achievement.
