The Awful Truth (1937) (U)

Director Leo McCarey. Black & White Comedy/Romance

Before their divorce becomes final, Jerry and Lucy Warriner both do their best to ruin each other's plans for remarriage, Jerry to haughty socialite Barbara Vance, she to oil-rich bumpkin Daniel Leeson. Among their strategies: Jerry's court-decreed visitation rights with Mr. Smith, their pet fox terrier, and Lucy doing her most flamboyant Dixie Belle Lee impersonation as Jerry's brassy "sister" before his prospective bride's scandalized family.

Starring Irene Dunne, Cary Grant, Ralph Bellamy

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

People didn't know what to expect but loved this classic film, Cary Grant in a movie that is not so well known but deserves to be. Much laughter. Sheer escapism.
