"Bringing Up Baby" is a real hoot! It's a 1938 comedy romance w/ Katharine Hepburn playing a ditzy young woman and Cary Grant at his geekiest screwball comedy best! Charles Ruggles as Maj. Horace Applegate is hilarious and May Robson as Aunt Elizabeth makes a great foil for his pompous but befuddled character. Don't miss it!

Oh, goody, vaccuous comments about Cary Grant movies! Who really cares about personal preference or which bit player was it a movie. What a group of Chatty Cathy's here in Lawrence.

Yep, ditto on "Bringing Up Baby", arguably the first dark comedy out of that era of Hollywood. Fantastic flick for the period.

Here's a recreation of a famous recreation of that famous Cary Grant line, "Judy, Judy, Judy." enjoy

"Arsenic and Old Lace" is hilarious, of my favorites...

Oh, and by the way, not-so-friendlyjhawk...Cary Grant wasn't a bit player in any of these movies...

Unlike you apparently are now, in real life...
