I am officially offering to change my vote to His Girl Friday for the low price of 1 bitcoin. Any takers?

I hope I’m not the only one doing a terrible Cary Grant impression to the dismay of friends and family.

Cary Grant referencing Archie Leach is just sublime. His Girl Friday all the way.

Diametrically opposed films IMO.
One treats the woman with respect, giving her wit, charisma and character.
The other places nonsensical flaws that only a male writer could come up with.
Philadelphia Story frustrates me in other ways as well. The gross male characters are treated with respect, with the film potentially agreeing with them (Cary Grant & the father). The schlocky, syrupy soapy ending that makes almost no sense, with a sudden marriage to the man with the biggest star power at the time. What a bunch of soapy nonsense; and there were glimmers of hope early on too. Total shame; but yeah His Girl Friday trumps Philadelphia by a longway.
