BRINGING UP BABY (1938)
Vintage original 7 x 9 ” (19 x 24 cm.) sepia-tinted double weight matte finish still photo, USA. Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Charles Ruggles, May Robson, Walter Catlett, Barry Fitzgerald, dir: Howard Hawks; RKO. Popular crazy caper of an heiress who inherits a baby leopard and causes a series of adventures, accompanied by a resigning paleontologist. Perfectly cast were Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn in what is considered tops in screwball comedy.
Here is a behind-the-scenes image of Grant and Hepburn dressed in their formal attire handling the leopard on the RKO lot. Grant was said to not be fond of this leopard — which is apparent in this image — and Hepburn, who nearly had a fatal accident with the animal (the trainer stepped in to handle), appears to be treating it with trepidation. Still is coded “BU-PUB-A116”. Photo is slightly trimmed for publication, NEAR FINE.
