Director Leo McCarey won an Oscar(r) and star Irene Dunne was nominated (one of her five Best Actressnominations) for THE AWFUL TRUTH, one of the most captivating screwball comedies ever made. A comicbattlefield presided over by two superbly-matched sparring partners, THE AWFUL TRUTH also stars Cary Grant as the other half of a couple facing divorce and fighting over custody of their beloved dog,Mr. Smith.
