His Girl Friday

Man sees woman as his equal, in 1940 USA... OMG!

(Edit) 07/10/2015

A surprising version of woman-versus-man romance trope.

The woman is not silly for a start - pretty amazing for a film made in 1940.

The film's premise is that a careers are important for women too; and that being a stay at home mum is not the only option; the male romantic lead proves his true love by showing how important her career is to her. I suspect maybe a bit of propaganda ahead of the USA joining the Allies in WWII; watch out for the brief mention of Hitler.

The sound quality is poor - but the dialogue is clear enough,
