  • Historically, The Awful Truth is probably most significant as the film that secured Grant's star, forcing him to adopt his famously relaxed persona through McCarey's improvisational approach to ...

  • The Awful Truth is one of my all-time favorite movies! It is an absolutely hilarious screwball comedy. Essentially, The Awful Truth is the story of Jerry (Cary Grant) and Lucy (Irene Dunne) Warriner: a rich, elegant couple that decides to get a divorce.

  • The 30's was a much more innocent time for Hollywood filmmaking. Directors hadn't really dug deep into the more somber overtones of the 40's, and I think this contributed to The Awful Truth's charm.

  • The acting isn’t great, but the Metropolitan Playhouse production of “The Awful Truth” provides a rewarding sense of rediscovery, even for those unfamiliar with the work. It’s the ...

  • Awful Truth is anything but awful In 1937 Cary Grant was already a Hollywood Giant. a dynamic actor and a genuine Star. But in the `Awful Truth,' Irene Dunn took him to school. Yes, Mr. Grant was as charismatic as usual, delivering his lines marvelously, perfect in comedic timing, and demonstrating great physical humor.

  • The Awful Truth is a situational comedy, but the rapport between Grant and Dunne and how they react to each other is what makes this film so smartly funny. Cary Grant had many famous and popular leading ladies (including Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman and Grace Kelly).

  • The Awful Truth (1937) Blu-ray Review Dr. Loomis 24th May 2018 The Criterion Collection has recently released a 4K remastered version of the classic Cary Grant screwball comedy film The Awful Truth (1937) on to Blu-ray.

  • Like many comedies of remarriage, The Awful Truth never suggests that its central couple won’t reconcile—because if suspense were to truly enter the equation, the film’s delicate emotional soufflé might collapse, ruining the high sense of suggestion with the explicitness of consequences.
