Monkey Business

Ongoing

Dir. Howard Hawks. 1952, 97 mins. 35mm print from 20th Century Fox. With Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, Charles Coburn, Marilyn Monroe. A pharmaceutical Fountain of Youth invented by a lab chimpanzee unleashes long-suppressed passions in Doctor Fulton (Cary Grant) and his prudent wife (Ginger Rogers) in a sidesplitting, anarchic slapstick comedy that “sets out—gaily, logically, and with an unholy abandon—to chronicle the fatal stages in the degradation of a superior mind” (Jacques Rivette).
