Directed by Howard Hawks. US. 1938. Ages 6+. 102 minutes.
Sat., November 20, 2010
The definitive screwball comedy and one of the funniest films ever made. Cary Grant gives his best comic performance as a befuddled, bespectacled anthropologist who becomes mixed up with daffy, but determined heiress Katharine Hepburn. Together, they tear apart the Connecticut countryside searching for leopards, pet terriers, and an intercostal clavicle, all the while being mistaken for the notorious Leopard Gang, big game hunters from Brazil. Grant and Hepburns flawless comic timing and Hawks inspired direction combine to make this a timeless and much adored classic. (TLA Film & Video Guide)
This film will be shown on DVD.
