Screen legends Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant star in one of the greatest screwball comedies ever filmed--Bringing Up Baby. David Huxley (Grant) must complete an exhibit on dinosaurs before his wedding in order for his museum to receive a $1 million grant. But while Huxley is playing golf with his would-be benefactors, heiress Susan Vance (Hepburn) meets the reserved scientist and decides she will marry him--even if he is already engaged. Using her pet leopard, Vance lures Huxley to her Connecticut home--where a terrier makes off with the vital last bone for Huxley's exhibit. Now, a desperate quest for the missing dinosaur bone rapidly spins out of control as Huxley loses his fossil, his fiancée and his freedom in a hilarious, madcap adventure.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while there are a lot of physical misadventures in Bringing Up Baby there no injuries in this madcap comedy. And except for a few shots of a roaring, teeth-baring leopard nothing is frightening or threatening in a real way. Characters are clumsy -- fall, bump into walls, drive incompetently, and more. “Baby,” a tame leopard, is confused with a wild leopard which results in some chasing, erratic gun play, and more pratfalls. A character drinks to excess, also as a source of humor. There’s one throwaway reference to going "gay.”
