Synopsis of Bringing Up Baby

In Bringing Up Baby, the hilarity doesn’t let up for a moment. It’s a classic screwball comedy starring Cary Grant and the irrepressible Katherine Hepburn. Grant plays David Huxely. He’s an up-tight, stuffy paleontologist. While on a golf course, he has a run-in with the irrepressible, unfathomable Susan Vance (Hepburn). She’s an imp if ever there was. Deciding on the spot that David is the man for her, she proceeds to bedevil him at every turn with classic comedy results.

Together they embark on a long difficult journey, without any comfort. Rose grows determined to assist in the British war effort and presses Charlie until he finally agrees and together they steam up the Ulana encountering an enemy fort, raging rapids, bloodthirsty parasites and endlessly branching stream which always seem to lead them to what appear to be impenetrable swamps.
