A few kisses. When a woman dances, her dress flies up and reveals some of her legs. Other sexual content is rather minor.

It is heavily implied that a married man and woman have both had extramarital affairs. While the discussion is always indirect and “tasteful,” this is a major plot point.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


If Gary grant was the most dazzling star in the 1940s, he must be well deserved. The emergence of stars and the prosperity of films always complement each other, and funny comedy must be the best stage for grant in this era, and he himself, with his tall and handsome appearance and low magnetic voice, entered the American life in the 1940s.

In an era when television is not yet popular, film has become an indispensable entertainment in people’s life. In the United States, where the grading system and censorship system are becoming more and more mature, filmmakers are starting to avoid erotic violence in films. It is the birth of the two systems, Actually gave birth to a new type of Comedy – funny comedy screenball comedy. Funny comedy is characterized by the fun of falling in love. The male and female protagonists fully enjoy the joy of love itself rather than sex, such as bickering, traveling together, flirting and so on. Or even more, the hero and heroine may be in a state of opposition from the beginning, such as divorced couples, career competitors and so on. This kind of comedy is different from the action comedy of the four clowns in the silent film era before the United States and the social criticism comedy in the 1930s. It neither makes an article on exaggerated actions and modeling, nor uses some completely antisocial absurd lines to achieve the comic effect, because the most important point is, After the 1940s, American films gradually have real film actors rather than clowns to participate in the creation of comedy, such as grant, Stewart and so on. The comedy film has changed from the original fragment story to a richer and full plot, which has become a real film story and presented in front of the audience.

The political system and social culture are also changing and developing. The United States has been in the post economic depression period. Political movements such as socialism and human democracy are in full swing. Filmmakers not only complain and condemn, but also start to think about the current situation. In culture, the collision and opposition between modernity and tradition are also going on nervously. For example, whether big cities are more suitable for people to live, or traditional villages are more humanized, and industrialization and modernization are impacting people’s values in full swing.

The awful truth is a typical example of this era. At the beginning of the video, the protagonists and heroines are in a state of opposition. The two people confront each other in court. The original intention is to divorce. They actually argue for who should adopt a pet dog. Like children, the two people are unwilling to give in to each other for a pet dog, which seems absurd, In fact, it was a common suspicion of marriage and family among Americans at that time. However, the director mccaray is very clever to convey a view in the main film through the use of the lens. The protagonists and heroines are made for each other and will eventually come together. This cleverness is reflected in that every time the hero and his new girlfriend meet the heroine and her new boyfriend, the camera is always aimed at the hero and heroine, not their new partner.

At the same time, the film describes the bridge between two people’s game love very romantic and interesting. At the same time, it also handles the subtle relationship between two people very intelligently. Every time two people want to talk about their relationship again, someone will come out to disturb them. This is also another feature of funny romantic comedy, not taking relationship series.

The design of the ending is more exquisite. The two people are placed in two rooms by an unstable door. The villains in the clock on the door keep coming out and then return to their own small doors, indicating their own inner hesitation, and the lines also indicate the subtle relationship between the two people over and over again – the heroine keeps saying that something has changed, The hero keeps emphasizing that things have changed, but the essence will not change. In fact, what he means here is probably the feelings of two people towards each other and their current situation. When the last two people make up, the two villains in the clock also enter the same small door. The very interesting and smart ending avoids the restriction of the censorship system on kissing and makes the ending interesting.

The performances of the two actors in the film are commendable. Grant interprets the image of Playboy very well, while the heroine Irene Dunn interprets a socialite of the upper class perfectly. Whether it’s elegant manners or decent smiles, she shows her skilled acting skills everywhere.

Finally, as a classic fireworks game for Playboys and celebrities, the awful truth not only represents the high production level of American funny comedy in the 1940s, but also reflects the high enthusiasm of Americans for Comedy in that era.
