Directed by Howard Hawks

Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn exude all the charm and wit of Hollywood’s Golden Age in director Howard Hawk’s timeless screwball comedy. 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.

RKO Radio Pictures Inc. Based on the short story by H. Wilde. Screenwriter: Dudley Nichols, Hagar Wilde. Cast: Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charlie Ruggles.

35mm, b/w, 102 min.
