       "Real stories and fascinating details behind the 
         most intriguing people who have ever lived." 
------------------------------------------------------------
Greetings Biography Buff, 

I remember the first movie I watched in my college journalism 
class was "His Girl Friday" (1940). This brilliant screwball 
comedy directed by Howard Hawks, starred both Rosalind Russell 
and Cary Grant. In this unforgettable film Russell played a 
beautiful ace reporter who is also the former wife of her news-
paper editor, Cary Grant, who is still in love with her. This 
week we remember these two classic stars, who died this week 
in history.
