It’s a Fedora-Fest, as Paula Simons, award-winning City Columnist for The Edmonton Journal introduces Howard Hawks’ classic screwball comedy about a woman, a man, and a scoop.

Ace reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell) is leaving journalism for married suburban bliss with her fiancé Bruce (Ralph Bellamy). But Hildy’s ex-editor and ex-husband Walter (Cary Grant) hopes one big story will seduce Hildy back to the newsroom and back into his arms. After all, what could be more romantic than an execution – or a corrupt mayor?

After the film Jana Pruden, The Edmonton Journal’s Crime Bureau Chief, will join Paula for an audience Q&A.
