Bringing Up Baby (1938) is an American screwball comedy film directed by Howard Hawks, starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, and released by RKO Radio Pictures. The movie tells the story of a paleontologist winding up in various predicaments involving a woman with a unique sense of logic and a leopard named 'Baby'. The supporting cast includes Charles Ruggles, Barry Fitzgerald, Walter Catlett, and May Robson. The screenplay was adapted by Dudley Nichols and Hagar Wilde from a short story by Wilde that originally appeared in Collier's Weekly magazine on April 10, 1937. Originally a disastrous flop upon its release, the film's appreciation has grown tremendously in the decades since. In 1990, Bringing Up Baby was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant'. David Huxley (Cary Grant) is a mild-mannered paleontologist beleaguered by problems.
