Bringing Up Baby

U.S., 1938

Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn exude all the charm and wit of Hollywood’s Golden Age in this timeless screwball comedy directed by Howard Hawks. Grant plays Dr. David Huxley, a serious-minded paleontologist who finds his orderly world turned upside down by Hepburn’s delightfully eccentric heiress. Their rat-a-tat-tat verbal jousting and equally dazzling instincts for physical gags makes this a perfect, family-friendly introduction to Hollywood’s Golden Age.

35mm, b&w, 102 min. Director: Howard Hawks. Screenwriters: Dudley Nichols, Hagar Wilde. With: Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charlie Ruggles.

Recommended for ages 6+
