Description
5 Academy Award Nominations including Best Picture

Leo McCarey won a 1937 Best Director Oscar and star Irene Dunne was nominated (one of her five Best Actress nominations) for The Awful Truth, one of the most captivating screwball comedies ever made.

A comic battlefield presided over by two superbly matched sparring partners, The Awful Truth also stars Cary Grant as the other half of a couple facing divorce-and fighting over custody of their beloved dog, Mr. Smith. Somewhere before the final divorce decree, however, Jerry decides he wants Lucy back, only to learn that she's marrying a country bumpkin (hilariously played by Ralph Bellamy). Jerry counters with an engagement to the aristocratic Molly Lamont, sparking a sexy, sophisticated battle of wits that ranks among the wackiest comedies in screen history.

    Cary Grant and Irene Dunne in one of Hollywood's gems. Cracking dialogue and non-stop marital mayhem. And there's that dog! (Plus Irene's windy song!)

      I love this movie! It's one of the best comedies ever made. The actors are great. The story-line never gets old, no matter how many times you may see it.

        Great acting by Irene Dunne and Cary Grant - and Mr. Smith was funny as well. The whole cast did a great job and the dialogue was fun to keep up with and as witty as could be.
