The Awful Truth (1937) & My Favorite Wife (1940)

17 Jun

my favorite wife 33I’ll have a lot more to say about Irene Dunne very soon as part of the Funny Lady Blogathon at the end of this month, so in lieu of detail let’s just say I’ll be re-watching that glorious Louisvillian in two of her finest comic performances, both of which are conveniently airing on TCM this week: The Awful Truth at 2:30 p.m. on June 17 and My Favorite Wife at noon on June 23. They’re both splendid, they both also feature Cary Grant, and they’ll both figure into my look at Dunne’s comic oeuvre on or about June 29. They’re both fine examples of screwballery and not to be missed.
