Allan Arkush on

Only Angels Have Wings

Released 1939
Distributor Columbia

Calling Baranca! Calling Baranca! Cary Grant followed up his successful role in Gunga Din with another signature performance, his edgiest to date, in one of the finest entries in the magical movie year of 1939. It was the second of five films he would make with director Howard Hawks. Famous as the supposed origin of the oft-quoted Cary Grant impersonation line “Judy, Judy, Judy”, one of the best-known lines never actually spoken in a movie.

About Allan Arkush

A record collector and film buff from his early days, Allan Arkush brought his two loves together in directing the cult classic Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Allan’s day job is directing and executive producing television series like Heroes, The Client List and Crossing Jordan.  He has also directed episodes of Ally McBeal, Moonlighting and many other tv series as well as the mini-series, The Temptations, for which he won an Emmy. He wishes that someone would release his 1997 Showtime movie Elvis Meets Nixon on DVD.
