It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...


Bringing Up Baby (Hawks, 1938)

So this is the great American comedy? Actually, the answer might be yes. I am almost ashamed to say that I had never seen Hawks' classic Bringing Up Baby before last night. Brilliantly funny with strong performances, the film lives up to its vaunted position in history, mostly on the backs of a perfectly matched Grant and Hepburn. Hawks talent has always lay in pace, and he keeps he film clipping along at breakneck speed.

Baby is a silly romance, the type of film that people don't really even try to make any more.
