Bringing Up Baby
“No, I just went GAY all of a sudden!”

Like I mentioned yesterday, Cary Grant is also in today’s film: Bringing Up Baby.  This time he is teamed up with the acting phenomenon Katharine Hepburn.  Grant filmed Bringing Up Baby right after he finished shooting The Awful Truth.  This script was actually tailored to Hepburn.
One of the best aspects of this film is the ad-libbing that was done between Hepburn and Grant.  They bantered excellently, and reacted really naturally to each other.  The chemistry between the two actors/characters, and the ease with which Hepburn sinks into her character are what makes this film such fun to watch.  This film also features a leopard, which Grant was extremely afraid of, much to the enjoyment of his fellow cast members.
