5.0 out of 5 stars
Could do better but still brilliant., 31 Aug 2002
Cary Grant is at his comedic peak here as an unscrupulous newspaper editor with Rosalind Russell as his ex wife. Ralf Bellamy plays the strait man to Grant and Russell’s hilarious dialogue. What lets it down, as a product is two fold; firstly the poor quality picture (at one point there is a break with black screen and no audio) I have videoed it from TV better than this. Secondly there are no special features: no sub titles, no interviews nothing. There is plenty of footage that could have been added from Cary Grant or Howard Hawks the director. As the original was on shot wide for the cinema why do we have to have 4:3 ratio for old TVs??? More time and a little thought would have produced a better product. Possibly the fastest moving comedy ever and for that I give it five stars.
