Bringing Up Baby

This episode Noel Thingvall joins us again as we dig up missing dinosaur bones, get a leash around a tame leopard, and discuss Howard Hawk's classic screwball comedy Bringing Up Baby. Listen as we analyze whether Katharine Hepburn's impulsive heiress is the original Manic Pixie Dream Girl, chuckle at the risqué innuendos the script manage to slip by the censors, and propose potential sequels involving Mothra and deadly tar pits. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and Bruce Willis dubbed into Japanese.

Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.

  1. When I see movies from now on, I'll be looking for indications of inspiration from "Bringing Up Baby."
    "Lake Placid"? Wow!

    1. We'll admit we we're surprised by that one too but it does fit.

      Noel always brings a fascinating persepective. We're happy to announce he'll be back on next month to talk about some classic sci-fi movies!

      Thanks for listening!
