Directed by Howard Hawks

United States 1938 102 mins.

In Howard Hawks’ celebrated comedic masterpiece, a chronically flustered paleontologist (Cary Grant) comes under the spell of a free-spirited society gal (Katharine Hepburn) who keeps a rather large feline named Baby as a companion. “One of the finest screwball comedies ever.”—Geoff Andrew, Time Out

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
