Director Leo McCarey won an 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.

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.
