Designing the Movies: Bringing Up Baby (1938)
Thursday November 23, 6:45PM
85th Anniversary Screening! 
On American Thanksgiving we give thanks for this Howard Hawks screwball!
An absent-minded palaeontologist meets a flighty eccentric. What could possibly go wrong? Everything, as it turns out, because in spite of best efforts by pragmatic David Huxley (Cary Grant), chaos follows socialite Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn) wherever she goes. Bringing up Baby is the second of Grant and Hepburn’s four outings together and it’s as bizarre as it is beloved—for what is basically a series of madcap misunderstandings, pratfalls, fast-talking banter, slapstick. Even without the tame leopard, it’s almost certainly the screwiest screwball comedy of them all.
Presented with an introduction by series host Nathalie Atkinson.
