    Bringing Up Baby (RKO, 1938). 40" X 60". Considered by many to be the first and best of the screwball comedy genre, this film with its frantic pace, absurd antics and zany pratfalls was versatile Howard Hawks at his best. This was the second of four films co-starring Hepburn and Grant (the others were Sylvia Scarlett (1936), Holiday (1938), and The Philadelphia Story (1940). Offered here is without a doubt the prettiest poster created for this film in comparison to a very lackluster one sheet. This is the only known copy that we are aware of. Very Fine+ / Rolled and unrestored.
