The Awful Truth

USA  ·  1937  ·  35 mm  ·  Black and White  ·  90'  ·  o.v. English

A masterpiece of screwball comedy, the fruit of McCarey’s genius for on-set improvisation. A New York couple have agreed to end their marriage, but struggle to resist the temptations of a second honeymoon before their divorce proceedings become final. “The Awful Truth is a kind of comic Calvary, a road to redemption paved with painful hilarity” (Dave Kehr).
