Bringing Up Baby
Dir. Howard Hawks. 1938, 102 mins. 35mm. With Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant. This unparalleled screwball classic features Katharine Hepburn (in her only madcap role) as a flighty, often irritating heiress who, along with her leopard “Baby,” reduces a paleontologist seeking a million dollar donation for his museum to a primitive state. “Our relationship has been a series of misadventures,” Grant laments. “Everything’s going to be all right,” Hepburn repeats, unreassuringly.
