Episode 354: Bringing Up Baby (1938)

Bringing Up Baby (1938)Watch the trailer!

For the next two weeks, we're looking at the career of one of the greatest actors of all time, the legendary Katharine Hepburn. We begin back near the start of her career in 1938's "Bringing Up Baby." Directed by Howard Hawks and co-starring Cary Grant, the film that embraced the zany, madcap comedy and turned it into an art-form. Hepburn stars as Susan Vance, a young socialite with a penchant for twisting people around her little finger. She runs across staid and somewhat baffled Dr. David Huxley (Grant), who's about to get married to his fiance and assistant, Alice (Virginia Walker). David's attempting to woo Alexander Peabody (George Irving), the soliciter of Susan's Aunt Elizabeth (May Robson), in pursuit of a one million dollar donation to the museum. Add to that a pet leopard, a dog that just won't stop barking, a missing brontosaurus bone, and a colorful supporting cast, and you have an experience not quite like any other in cinema history!
