Bell, Book and Candle
Gillian Holroyd (Kim Novak) is just your average witch, living in New York. But when a handsome publisher, Shep Henderson (James Stewart) walks into her building she decides to cast a spell to keep him. But her powers are in danger of being exorcised by something stronger than the bell-book-and-candle routine, in this fantasy romance.
His Girl Friday (Dir. Howard Hawks): This hilarious re-working of The Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur sees Grant as the savage editor and, in a switch, the reporter played by scheming Rosalind Russell. This version adds the twin lures of sex and romance. The film moves at whirlwind speed, as Director Howard Hawks instructed his actors to overlap their lines, so much so that at times everyone seems to be talking at once. Hawks also had his cast move at twice the normal speed so the screen looks frantic from scene to scene, thus conveying the urgency of the news world he was depicting. It's undoubtedly Cary Grant's greatest comedic role, proving once again the amazing versatility of this Hollywood legend.
Pillow Talk (Dir. Michael Gordon): Day is an uptight interior decorator forced to share a party line with an amorous playboy who ties up the line with his exploits while she is trying to conduct business. When the two accidentally meet, he's taken with her beauty and, pretending to be a wealthy Texan, begins to court her mercilessly. Though flattered by this stranger's attention, it's not long before she discovers his true identity. Now, it's her turn to have a little fun...at his expense!
Bringing Up Baby (Dir. Howard Hawks): A dog belonging to an eccentric heiress (Hepburn) steals a dinosaur bone from David (Grant), an absent-minded Zoology professor. David follows the heiress to her home and all hell breaks loose when he loses his pet leopard known as 'Baby'. Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn give fantastic performances in one of Hollywood's finest screwball comedies, superbly directed by Howard Hawks.
