Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Howard Hawks. 1938, 102 mins. 35mm. With Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charles Ruggles, May Robson, Barry Fitzgerald. This unparalleled screwball classic features Hepburn (in her most truly madcap role) as a flighty, often irritating heiress who, along with her leopard named “Baby,” reduces a paleontologist (Grant) seeking a million–dollar donation for his museum to a primitive state. “Our relationship has been a series of misadventures,” Grant laments. “Everything’s going to be all right,” Hepburn repeats, unreassuringly. Hawks’s beloved comedy is constructed of one brilliant slapstick set piece after another, never letting up straight through to its (dinosaur) bone-shaking conclusion.
