Sassy screwball classic with a feminist twist.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while there's no sex or bad language in His Girl Friday, you do see a character jump out the window to her death and many characters pull guns on one another. There's also a considerable amount of underhanded behavior. For instance, Walter has Bruce arrested twice, gives him counterfeit money, and plans to rig the election with biased reporting.
