Description
In the mother of all screwball comedies, Cary Grant stars as a stuffy paleontologist who knows more about dinosaurs than he does about the modern woman. This makes him easy prey for wacky heiress Katherine Hepburn, who gets her man involved in a series of increasingly funny disasters. Director Hawks, a master of all genres, provided a template for comedy directors for years to come.
