    Bringing Up Baby (RKO, 1938). Dutch Poster (27.5" X 34.5").
    Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made four films together, all of which are outstanding classics: The Philadelphia Story, Sylvia Scarlett, Holiday, and this screwball comedy, which is perhaps the most popular film of the genre. The fast-paced dialogue (a specialty of both performers), non-stop chase scenes, and general hilarious confusion combine to make this an enjoyable treat from start to finish. A highlight in all the fun chaos is the running theme song, "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" which must be sung to calm "Baby." The Dutch poster offered here is a Heritage first, and could be considered the best version of paper from the film -- stunning stone litho portraits of Hepburn and Grant combine with a delightful caricature of the duo feeding their "Baby" leopard. Professional restoration has been applied to extra horizontal folds, tape on the verso at the top and bottom border, and slight bleed through from writing on the verso in the upper right corner, near the title and Grant's bow tie. The poster is lifting slightly from the linen, which may have been trimmed slightly. A surprising gem that is sure to delight poster collectors! Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
