It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
Fionn selected Cary Grant’s The Awful Truth (1937) for a few reasons. The film was a success that year, despite the cast feeling it would be the awful fail. Part of why they felt that way may have been the improv heavy production style. However, Fionn feels this really introduces viewers to the talent of his acting hero. Cary Grant remains an unprecedented leading man. Women still fall in love with him and his performances still rank high as a delight. He was skilled. Fionn tells us, this film shows why.
Sure, it’s a bit subtle. Yet, when you realize that the majority of the film is improved, you see how talented Grant was. Fionn is honored to take on this project, with the knowledge that he’s got a script in place. He hopes to one day have the level of ability to create as Grant did.
