Is there an actress who could comedic sarcasism as well as Joan Blondell


Recommended Posts

Here's another one: Rosalind Russell as Hildegaard 'Hildy' Johnson in His Girl Friday (1940).


Walter Burns: I still wish you hadn't done that, Hildy.

Hildy Johnson: Done what?

Walter Burns: Divorced me. It makes a man feel he's not wanted.

Hildy Johnson: Oh, now look, junior... that's what divorces are FOR!


Walter Burns: There's been a lamp burning in the window for ya, honey.

Hildy Johnson: No thanks - I jumped out that window a long time ago.


Hildy Johnson: Walter, you're wonderful, in a loathsome sort of way.

One of my favorite sarcastic Ginger Rogers' lines is from "Vivacious Lady" Just before the infamous catfight, Frances Mercer as Ginger's rival states, "I oughta give you a piece of my mind." Ginger replies, "Oh, I couldn't take the last piece!"
