poured out before bed
Whenever I do something clumsy (which is actually quite often) – I may be heard to exclaim – “OH, DAY-VID!” – simply because of this movie.
The AFI has listed this little film as #14 on it’s list of the best laughs in the last 100 years and, though I might move it a bit farther up the list, I agree with this accolade. I love Cary Grant. I love Katharine Hepburn. I love clever dialogue. My favorite line? “In moments of quiet I’m strangely drawn to you, but, well, there haven’t been any quiet moments,” (David, Grant’s character, to Susan, played by Hepburn). My favorite scene? Well, there’s too many for me to name just one… When Susan steals David’s car…when a rather important portion of Susan’s wardrobe goes missing…the meet cute between David and Baby…when David follows George obsessively all through a formal dinner…when Susan is a heel after losing her heel…when the two leads are submerged in a “shallow” stream…when Susan successfully talks her way out of prison…I could go on (and on and on). Seriously. Go rent it. If you appreciate classic films, you will not regret it!
