I’ve been enjoying the new laptop (and its fabulous 4 gigs of RAM) and while randomly browsing YouTube, I found a great compilation of clips from Cary Grant and Irene Dunne.
The movies she lists are all good, but “The Awful Truth” is a particular favourite of mine. It’s pretty funny. Throughout the movie Cary’s character is insanely jealous and suspicious of Irene’s character’s voice teacher (he’s French) and the scene at 1:40 to 1:50 of the clip is after he bursts in on what he assumes is an assignation, a tryst, but it’s really just a recital. She is cracking up (genuinely, I believe) while she continues to sing, and if you look closely you can see the voice teacher on piano doing the same. Great stuff! They really had a fabulous chemistry together.
