Screwball Comedy Alert

ABC2 are starting a Cary Grant season - this Saturday they are screening "Bringing Up Baby" at 8.30. In this classic Screwball comedy from 1938. It's a scream - there's class conflict, mistaken identities, fast repartee, and a leopard. That's Baby. And a dinosaur too, in skeleton form.

Every handsome young actor who has any flair for comedy at all gets described as "a young Cary Grant" these days. See the real young Cary Grant for yourself!

I think they are showing "Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House" soon. That's a fun one too.
