Cary Grant, "Baby" and Katharine Hepburn behind the scenes of Bringing Up Baby (1938) (via National Portrait Gallery)

Bringing Up Baby (1938)

  • Why? Howard Hawks is one of my favorite directors, Cary Grant is my favorite man ever to live. A leopard and Katharine Hepburn are also involved. It is really impossible to hate a movie that boasts these elements.
  • Favorite character: Baby (duh) and Major Applegate (portrayed by Charlie Ruggles)
  • Favorite quote or scene: “When a man is wrestling a leopard in the middle of a pond, he’s in no position to run.”
