Leoparden küßt man nicht (1938)62K
Leoparden küßt man nicht: Directed by Howard Hawks. With Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charles Ruggles, Walter Catlett. While trying to secure a $1 million donation for his museum, a befuddled paleontologist is pursued by a flighty and often irritating heiress and her pet leopard, Baby.
“Itu0026#39;s not just a classic – Itu0026#39;s a timeless one! Katharine Hepburn (by her own accounts) was in two minds about playing screwball comedy. But she pulls off the characterization of the mad-cappest heroin/heiress ever portrayed on film. Itu0026#39;s NOT Kate. Itu0026#39;s Kate brilliantly breaking out of her 1930s typecast. The pace is fast, Cary Grant is brilliant as the professor Kate harasses/helps/falls in love with throughout. And what about Susanu0026#39;s aunt and the major? Priceless! Kudos to Baby, as well. I think maybe a few reviewers have been taking their humor from watching 1930s European comedies. Unless itu0026#39;s all out and out vaudeville or cabaret transpositions youu0026#39;re watching, I wouldnu0026#39;t recommend making those your standards for judging u0026quot;Bringing Up Babyu0026quot;. Worse still if youu0026#39;re judging by American/European standards of the 21st Century. Iu0026#39;m not saying youu0026#39;re wrong, Iu0026#39;m just saying since you canu0026#39;t compare this to virtually anything of those, just enjoy the ride. The Acting you CAN compare, though. And I put my money u0026amp; soul on Hepburn, Grant u0026amp; Baby every time.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e10/10”
