The Awful Truth

The Awful Truth ★★★★½

First, there's not more than a dozen things in the history of American movies sexier than Cary Grant making sure a door can stay put so he can jump in bed with his wife. I know I love cats, because while Asta gives this movie third best performance, no small feat, I can't stop laughing at the efforts of that cat to make sure Grant doesn't open the door. The Awful Truth really is the perfect remarriage movie because it was directed by good horny catholic McCarey who believes in the sanctity of monogamy as much as he believes in Grant and Dunne sexual attraction. Plus, McCarey laboratory of acting does offer Grant, Dunne and the whole wonderful supporting cast so much room to work around, every small bit, a different revelation.
