31 Days of Oscar: The Awful Truth

There's nothing like breaking up to bring a couple together: Cary Grant and the Oscar nominated Irene Dunne (love the hat) are delightfully daffy in this essential screwball comedy classic. The two stars play a divorced pair who constantly end up mixed up in each other's love lives, with predictably hilarious results.

Director Leo McCarey won the Best Director Academy Award for this Best Picture contender, which also stars Supporting Actor nominee Ralph Bellamy in his signature role as the luckless third wheel.

The Awful Truth airs tomorrow night at midnight EST on Turner Classic Movies.
