Cary Grant in "I Was a Male War Bride" screened at BYU Jan. 27

The Brigham Young University Motion Picture Archive Film series will show the 1949 classic “I Was a Male War Bride” Friday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on level one.

The showing is free and open to the public. The movie is 105 minutes long, and doors open at 6:30 p.m.

“I Was a Male War Bride” stars Cary Grant, Ann Sheridan, Marion Marshall and Randy Stuart and is an unusual romantic comedy set in war-torn Germany. The story follows an American officer who marries a Frenchman who somehow switch roles, leaving Cary Grant posing as a war bride.

“I’ve been in many comedies but I’ve never heard an audience react like this one. I honestly feel it’s the best comedy I’ve ever done,” said Grant of his role in the movie .

The movie was directed by Howard Hawks, whose personal papers are preserved in the library’s L. Tom Perry Special Collections.
