At The Drive-In

2 - His Girl Friday (1940)

av At The Drive-In | Publicerades 2/27/2020

This week's episode I look at the classic screwball comedy "His Girl Friday" (1940). Although it is presented as a comedy, the more one looks into it, the more disturbing it gets. There are issues of racism and sexism that are hard to ignore, and that really should not be ignored.

Om Podcasten

A podcast where I talk about movies from the 30s to the 60s. I will be looking at the plot, themes, characters, funny anecdotes, and anything worth mentioning. The structure of the podcast will alternate between very famous movies from the time (eg Hitchcock) and lesser known movies that are definitely worth talking about. I will also be dedicating some episodes to specific actors and directors and looking at their contribution to cinema.
