Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant and a rather large lepoard (Baby) feature in this, the definitive screwball comedy from Howard Hawks.
Grant is Dr David Huxley, a paleantologist with a love of the quiet life, whilst Hepburn is the wealthy Susan who crashes into his life disrupting his plans to finish a monumental reconstruction of a brontosauras skeleton and win a $1million donation to his museum.
Madcap adventures ensue as David and Susan's lives become inextricably entwined.
USA 1938 Dir. Howard Hawks 102min.
