This film clip is of one of my favorite slapstick moments! I laugh every time I see it. I could not find it anywhere, so I filmed it myself (so I apologize for the quality). It is from the 1937 screwball comedy, The Awful Truth.
|Cary Grant and Irene Dunne starred in three movies together, The Awful Truth|
and My Favorite Wife (1940) and Penny Serenade (1941). I wish they had made more films together because these two were amazing! They were both naturally comedic (in a graceful, self-effacing way), but they were also both really good dramatic actors.
|1948, I Remember Mama|
|Another of my favorite Irene Dunne movies, Life With Father. She plays the scatterbrained Vinnie Day|
to perfection along side William Powell, who is equally wonderful.
