The Awful Truth

The Awful Truth is a 1937 screwball comedy starring Cary Grant, Irene Dunne and Ralph Bellamy. Leo McCarey is the director/producer. The dog in this film is the same one that plays "Asta" in the Thin Man movies. It won an award and received some positive recognition. This is another of my presents to The Husband to keep him supplied with happy movies.

It's online at youtube in 11 parts. part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11

Veoh has it if you're willing to download their own special player. What's with that, anyway? I can watch videos at other sites without downloading anything.

It's on Time's list of 100 best films. The New York Times says, "To be frank, The Awful Truth is awfully unimportant, but it is also one of the more laughable screen comedies of 1937, a fairly good vintage year."
