Bringing Up Baby. 1938. USA. Directed by Howard Hawks. Screenplay by Dudley Nichols, Hagar Wilde. 102 min.
With Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Charles Ruggles, Walter Catlett. Paleontologist David Huxley is wildly giddy about the discovery of a fossil for his dinosaur skeleton—and not so much about his engagement to his assistant, the sensible Alice. Huxley is dependent upon a capricious heiress named Susan Vance to fund the purchase of the prehistoric clavicle bone. Susan is tempestuous and audacious, and the befuddled professor is intrigued by her antics.
