The Projection Booth watches The Awful Truth (1937)

Our friends at the Projection Booth watch Leo McCarey’s The Awful Truth (1937). “Screwball month continues with a look at Leo McCarey’s The Awful Truth (1937). Based on the play by Arthur Richman, the film stars Cary Grant and Irene Dunn as Jerry and Lucy Warriner, a couple who break up before the first act is even over. They would have a clean break apart from their both wanting custody of their dog, Mr. Smith, and that they both still may love one another.

Kat Ellinger and Aaron Peterson join Mike to discuss the film as well the 1953 interpretation of Richman’s play, Let’s Do It Again.” Listen here.
