Hollywood has always been fascinated by the lives of those people who basically know all its secrets: journalists.
Movies like Citizen Kane, All the President’s Men, A True Crime, Wag the Dog, Zodiac, Almost Famous are only a few examples that bring the power of media to the big screen, showing its complexity and diversity.
Because tonight I’m in a comedy mood, I’ll leave here a classic recommendation, very dear to me, with a time-traveling story: a newspaper editor does everything he can to keep his ex-reporter wife from remarrying.
The movie: His Girl Friday (1940), directed by Howard Hawkes, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. Cute, old-fashioned comedy for a really lazy night.
