His Girl Friday

Synopsis: When hard-charging New York newspaper editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant) discovers that his ex-wife, investigative reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), has gotten engaged to milquetoast insurance agent Bruce Baldwin (Ralph Bellamy), he unsuccessfully tries to lure her away from tame domestic life with a story about the impending execution of convicted murderer Earl Williams. But when Hildy discovers Williams may be innocent, her reporter instincts take over.

HILDY:

No, never mind -- I'll blow my own

trumpet.

THREE SHOT BRUCE, HILDY AND OPERATOR

Hildy turns to Bruce.

HILDY:

I won't be more than ten minutes, I

promise you.

BRUCE:

Even ten minutes is a long time to

be away from you.

We hear a giggle off scene.

CLOSE SHOT OFFICE BOY

He looks towards Bruce and Hildy and giggles.

TWO SHOT BRUCE AND HILDY

HILDY:

What did you say, Bruce?

Bruce, embarrassed, looks at the office boy, then looks back

at Hildy as they turn toward second gate leading into City

Room.

BRUCE:

I said -- uh -- I said even ten

minutes -- is a long time -- to be

away from you.

HILDY:

Don't be embarrassed, Bruce. I heard

it, but I just wanted to hear it

again. I can stand being spoiled a

little. The gentleman I'm going to

have a chat with did very little

spoiling.

BRUCE:

(grimly)

I'd like to spoil him just once.

Sure you don't want me to go in with

you?
