The Awful Truth

In this 1937 Oscar winner, Cary Grant (in the role that defined his on-screen persona) and Irene Dunne display affection, charm, and a knack for rapid-fire one-liners as a couple who decide to divorce. But as they try to move on with their lives, he can’t help but try to sabotage her relationship with a stodgy Oklahoma businessman (Ralph Bellamy). Directed by Leo McCarey (Duck Soup), a master of improvisation and slapstick, The Awful Truth is a warm but unsparing comedy about two people whose flaws only make them more irresistible to one another.
