Bringing Up Baby

Reckoned by critics to be one of the finest screwball comedies ever made, this is a delicious offering from that wonderful director, Howard Hawks.

Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn are perfectly cast as David Huxley and Susan Vance. David is an easy-going palaeontologist whose life is turned upside down when he meets Susan, a delightfully scatty heiress.

Sparks fly between them after Susan's spirited dog runs off with a vital bone from the dinosaur skeleton that David is meticulously recreating.

In case you're wondering, the Baby of the title is Susan's mischievous pet leopard.
