A classic screwball comedy directed by Howard Hawks. The film follows the misadventures of David Huxley, a nerdy palaeontologist played by Cary Grant, whose life is turned upside down when he meets the eccentric heiress Susan Vance, played by Katharine Hepburn.

Susan's pet leopard, Baby, and her impulsive antics lead to a series of chaotic events, including a case of mistaken identity, a missing dinosaur bone, and a wild chase through the countryside. As David and Susan navigate these absurd situations, they develop an unexpected romance, culminating in a hilarious and heartwarming conclusion. Through its witty dialogue, zany plot twists, and charismatic performances this film remains a beloved classic of the screwball comedy genre.
