When newspaper editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant) discovers that his ex-wife and lead reporter, Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), is planning to remarry, Burns does everything he can to prevent it. With many tricks up his sleeve, Walter attempts to reconcile his relationship with Hildy after convincing her to cover one last news story. It may be the most exciting story of her life

Trivia: This film is based on the play The Front Page, in which the character of Hildy was actually a man! This was changed late in the auditioning stages of the film and the script had to be rewritten.
