Cary Grant and Irene Dunne charm in Leo McCarey’s Oscar‚Äźwinning screwball comedy…

In this Oscar®‚Äźwinning farce, Cary Grant (in the role that first defined the Cary Grant persona) and Irene Dunne (Love Affair) exude charm, cunning, and artless affection as an urbane couple who, fed up with each other’s infidelities, resolve to file for divorce. Try as they each might to move on, the mischievous Jerry can’t help but meddle in Lucy’s ill matched engagement to a corn‚Äźfed Oklahoma businessman (His Girl Friday’s Ralph Bellamy), and a mortified Lucy begins to realize that she may be saying goodbye to the only dance partner capable of following her lead. Directed by the versatile Leo McCarey (Make Way for Tomorrow), a master of improvisation and slapstick as well as a keen and sympathetic observer of human folly, The Awful Truth is a warm but unsparing comedy about two people whose flaws only make them more irresistible.
