I can't give this breakneck classic comedy anything but love, baby - even if audiences felt differently when it was released.
Dr. David Huxley (Cary Grant) is a meek paleontologist with two passions: the long-awaited completion of a Brontosaurus skeleton, and his fiancée, Alice (Virginia Walker) - although Alice insists that their marriage be purely for professional reasons with no "domestic entanglements." Their museum might be in the running for a million dollar donation from Mrs. Elizabeth Random (May Robson), and Alice dispatches David to seal the deal. However, David's numerous attempts to talk with Mr. Peabody (George Irving), Mrs. Random's lawyer, are thwarted by chance encounters with Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn), a flighty chatterbox. Said encounters result in embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, accidentally braining Mr. Peabody with a rock, numerous brushes with the law, and the impromptu delivery of a leopard named Baby to Susan's Connecticut home. (It mostly makes sense in context.) Although Susan drives David nuts, she naturally becomes rather smitten with him, and comes up with various ways to keep him from going back to New York City, each more harrowing for David than the last. And that's just the tip of this comedy of errors iceberg!
