continues a celebration for his forthcoming 80th birthday with Katharine Hepburn
This enchanting, crazy comedy is one of Howard Hawks's greatest triumphs and features Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn in a perfectly matched relationship. David Huxley is a quiet Professor, dedicated to zoological research. He is content to live out his life among the dry bones and exhibits of pre-historic dinosaurs. But then he encounters society girl Susan Vance.
Screenplay by DUDLEY NICHOLS and HAGER WILDE Produced by CLIFF REID

When Colonel Dayne is drafted on a secret mission, his daughter Alison is forced to continue her education away from home for the first time. At her new boarding school she finds a life charged with unwelcome dramas and puzzling situations. Why is the second mistress so unfriendly? Why does her classmate, Maud, become such a sneak? And who are the strange 'foreign-sounding' gentlemen who dog her footsteps wherever she goes? The adorable Miss Devine has the answers-but only Alison's two new-found chums, Hil and Jen, can make the Christmas term at St Ursula's bearable.
