One of the greatest screwball comedies ever made.
Straightlaced paleontologist David Huxley (Cary Grant) has to make a good impression on society matron Mrs Random (May Robson), who is considering donating one million dollars to his museum.
On the day before his wedding, Huxley meets Mrs Random's high-spirited young niece, Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn), a madcap adventurer who immediately falls for the uptight scientist.
The ever-growing chaos - including a missing dinosaur bone and a pet leopard - threatens to swallow him whole.
'The enduring fascination of this 1938 screwball comedy is due to much more than its uproarious gags' - The New Yorker
