#52. Bringing Up Baby (1938)


RKO Radio Pictures

– Runtime: 102 minutes

Critics panned the screwball comedy starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant when it was first released. Hepburn plays a mad-cap heiress, and Grant is an absent-minded professor who needs $1 million to finish constructing a brontosaurus skeleton. The movie is a trove of gags, physical antics, and double entendres.
