BRINGING UP BABY
1938, Warner Bros., 102 min, USA, Dir: Howard Hawks

Perhaps the greatest and most influential screwball comedy of all time, with Katharine Hepburn letting her hair down as a madcap heiress and Cary Grant putting his up as the absent-minded zoologist she’s decided she’s in love with. It just doesn’t get any funnier - or more frantic - than this. With Charlie Ruggles, Barry Fitzgerald, May Robson, Walter Catlett, Fritz Feld and screwball mascot Asta as George the dog.


RUGGLES OF RED GAP
1935, Universal, 92 min, Dir: Leo McCarey

This McCarey classic stars Charles Laughton as a veddy proper English valet who’s won in a poker game by a man from the Wild West (Charlie Ruggles), setting off a culture clash. With Mary Boland, ZaSu Pitts, Roland Young, Leila Hyams and many others. Remember: Always bring the pot to the kettle!
