Howard Hawk’s Bringing Up Baby stars Katherine Hepburn as Susan Vance, a spoilt heiress who has set her cap at Dr David Huxley (Cary Grant), a stuffy palaeontologist who needs just one more small bone to complete his prized brontosaurus skeleton.

Add Baby, a tame leopard that is delivered to Susan in her New York apartment; a terrier who steals and buries the irreplaceable bone; a pompous big game hunter; a rich old aunt whom David needs to charm; a jealous fiancée and a case of mistaken identity involving another fierce leopard that escaped from a circus – and, naturally, screwball antics ensue.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

GUEST SPEAKER

The film will be introduced and given context by Peter Rainey, an SMSA member and cinema enthusiast, who returns to an earlier passion for films as a Programme Director for a Queensland Cinema Group, now that he has retired after 40 years in the education profession.
