Casting HIS GIRL FRIDAY

Well,that’s news, that Columbia planned to re-team Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in HIS GIRL FRIDAY.
It makes sense and I love Irene, but Rosalind Russell made ‘Hildy’ her own. I’m glad this ad (for Columbia’s 1939-40 program) wasnt true.
I can’t see Irene as that frantic newspaperwoman.

(The ad is from Film Daily newspaper, a trade paper for the film industry.)

Here’s Rosalind as the irrepressible Hildy who can’t let a good story go past her.
