About the Play The Awful Truth:

The Awful Truth was a 1922 play by Arthur Richman. It was adapted into the 1937 film of the same name directed by Leo McCarey and starring Irene Dunne and Cary Grant.

Director Leo McCarey received an Academy Award for Best Director for The Awful Truth, though McCarey himself regarded Make Way for Tomorrow, which he also directed in 1937, as the more deserving film.

In addition, the film received a nomination for Best Picture, Irene Dunne was nominated for Best Actress, Ralph Bellamy for Best Supporting Actor, and Vi?a Delmar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

There were two previous film versions of Arthur Richman's play on which this film was based, a 1925 silent version with Warner Baxter in Grant's role, and a little-known early talkie made in 1929 with Henry Daniell and Ina Claire. The play was remade in color, as the 1953 musical Let's Do It Again starring Jane Wyman and Ray Milland.
