“Bringing Up Baby”


“Bringing Up Baby” (RKO Radio Pictures, 1938). A lunatic, nonsensical, classic comedy. Cary Grant plays David, a nerdy paleontologist who is trying to finalize critical funding for the museum he works for. Katherine Hepburn plays Susan, a wealthy, wacky woman who falls in love with David and fouls up his life in every possible way. Add a pet leopard, another leopard that escapes from the local zoo, a rare dinosaur bone, a busy dog, and snappy, non-stop dialogue from the A-list cast, and you’ve got a fun, one-of-a-kind screwball comedy. Written by Dudley Nichols and Hagar Wilde. Directed by Howard Hawks. “I can’t give you anything but love, baby…”
