Bringing Up Baby, directed by Howard Hawks in 1938, is one of the greatest screwball comedies and a treasure from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Peter Swaab's original exploration of the film shows that at the heart of this classical comedy is a story as alarming as it is exhilarating, a dream of irresponsibility and a vindication of letting go.
