A celebration of the genre that Lombard, William Powell, Myrna Loy, Cary Grant and so many others helped establish in the Golden Age -- one that remains popular with filmgoers -- next month's event not only will show rom-coms of the distant ("His Girl Friday") and more recent ("10 Things I Hate About You") past, but new films continuing the tradition. As part of the proceedings, 71 scripts are up for competition, with the winner to get a table read June 22.
