celluloid wit

9 years, 7 months ago at Apr 27 16:57
This is probably the best screwball comedy ever! The laughs are real, almost disguising its analyses of 1930s-style gender expectations, sex and marriage.

My favorite scene is when Cary Grant wears a feathery feminine bathrobe; this scene contains one of the first popular appearances of the word “gay” being used to mean something other than “extremely happy”; and it is truly... read more

A classic

Since this movie had a really solid reputation, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be one of those typical screwball comedies from the 30's but, to be honest, I have never been a huge fan of the genre. Indeed, even though the plot was supposed to be ridiculous and shouldn't be taken too seriously, I still had a hard time to care about what was going on. On t... read more

Screwball Comedy on Steroids

I make it no secret that screwball comedy is my favourite genre of film. I can never get tired of these films; to me this is the most un-boring genre ever. Whenever I’m watching a great screwball comedy I’m on cloud 9 and when it’s over I’m always left wanting more. Sometimes I wish my life was a screwball comedy.  Bringing Up Baby is the quintessential daffy dame/stuffy gentleman movie (... read more

The Greatest 100 Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant shine in the definitive screwball comedy of the thirties, courtesy of ace director Howard Hawks."

"9.4. Cary Grant pääsee kiitettävään munailukertoimeen, kun hän joutuu vahingossa pitämään huolta leopardista pershullun naisen kanssa. Naimisiinkin olisi tarkoitus päästä, mutta Grant paljastaa todellisen luonteensa (epämiehisyys) pyörtyessään kauhusta ja uupumuksesta. Ei muuta kuin naisen vaihtoon ja kaikki on soveliasta ja upeaa. Hyvä ruuvipalloilu ei jätä kylmäksi."

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"One of the very greatest, if not the greatest, of the screwball comedies, Howard Hawks’ perfectly constructed picture, teaming Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant with, among other things, a leopard and a dinosaur skeleton, was a flop on release, evidently causing the Academy to overlook it: the film went un-nominated in the year that Frank Capra’s so-so “You Can’t Take It With You” won Best Picture."
