Baby's the best

I've watched quite a few turkeys recently on DVD. (For example, there are the two duds I mention below, in earlier posts, Wicker Park and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow - major stinkers.)

But the bad taste of those has been cleaned away with Bringing Up Baby - Special Edition, a two disc set featuring the 1938 Howard Hawks' classic. It stars Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant and its fast, frantic and very funny.

It's also one of the better packages to come out recently as far as the special features go, particularly with its lengthy documentary called Cary Grant: A Class Apart. It also features commentary by Peter Bogdanovich, whose usually quite interesting and informative on these kinds of things.

Anyway ... I'm quite happy. This is one of my favourite movies.
