THE FRONT PAGE: One of the most significant films of the early sound era. “The Front Page” gave audiences the definitive concept of the filmic newspaperman, and film makers the definitive concept of sound film and its comedic potential. Remade by Howard Hawks as “His Girl Friday.” Set in the editorial room of a Chicago newspaper, director Milestone captured the pace and atmosphere by utilizing rapid deliveries of dialogue, a moving camera and quick cutting. The results are still as delightful as they were 85 years ago. HIS GIRL FRIDAY: One of the fastest and wittiest comedies ever made, His Girl Friday is an excellent adaption of the newspaper world hit play, “The Front Page.” The pace is rapid-fire, and the action non-stop with Howard Hawks' famed technique of overlapping conversation adding to this fun, sophisticated comedy.
