(Bringing Up Baby, Usa 1938, b/n, 102') Howard Hawks. Con Cary Grant, katharine Hepburn, Charles Ruggles, May Robson, Walter Catlett. * La vita del paleontologo David Huxley (Grant), impegnato a ricostruire lo scheletro di un dinosauro, è sconvolta dall'incontro casuale con un'ereditiera, Susan (Hepburn), che gli manda a monte il matrimonio e lo caccia nelle situazioni più imbarazzanti. Come altre commedie di Hawks, è la storia di una progressiva perdita di libertà da parte del maschio: la concatenazione di cause ed effetti, cui un riassunto farebbe torto, tocca però vertici irresistibili e insuperati nel genere della screwball comedy. Il "bambino" del titolo originale è il cucciolo di leopardo della protagonista, che viene scambiato per un leopardo feroce fuggito dallo zoo e si ammansisce solo cantandogli I Can Give You Anything But Love. Il vero leopardo, comunque è Susan, la cui capacità di generare catastrofi non risparmia neanche il bacio finale. Grant e la Hepburn al loro meglio. Sceneggiatura indiavolata di Dudley Nichols e Hagar Wilde. ( )
