Bringing Up Baby

In Howard Hawks’ rapid-fire screwball classic, Cary Grant plays a harried paleontologist on the eve of his wedding, who captures the attention of a high-spirited heiress (an irrepressible Katherine Hepburn) and her pet leopard, igniting a series of uproariously madcap comic misadventures. Featuring effervescent chemistry between the leads, nimble pacing and a high-speed script that continually tops itself, Bringing Up Baby is a hilarious masterwork for the ages.

“[Bringing Up Baby] is one of the finest screwball comedies ever. Fast, furious and very, very funny.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“[Bringing Up Baby] is a total delight and the performances are so invigorating that it can withstand many multiple viewings without losing its sparks.” – The Hollywood Reporter

The Palm Beach Story

The captivating Claudette Colbert stars as the frustrated wife of struggling engineer Joel McCrea. In a seemingly amicable agreement, Colbert hops a train to Palm Beach where divorces come easy. Desperate to escape a group of obnoxious millionaires on the train to Florida, Colbert hides out in a sleeping car where she meets, unbeknownst to her, one of the world’s richest men (Rudy Vallee) who is relentless in his attempt to romance her. Upon their arrival in Palm Beach, Colbert is met by her husband who has come to claim her back only to find that Vallee’s man-crazy sister (Mary Astor) is after him! The foursome’s story unfolds through intensely humorous dialogue, flirtatious situations and a splendid soundtrack. (Universal Studios)
