Fatal mishaps, outrageous complications, unending chaos. On the very day he is supposed to marry his zealous co-worker Alice, the life of paleontologist David Huxley (Cary Grant), a dedicated man of science, is turned totally upside down. The museum is his natural habit; the golf course, where he meets the asset manager of his potential patron, most certainly is not. It’s precisely there where his fate is sealed when he bumps into the eccentric heir to a fortune of millions (Katharine Hepburn) at the 18th hole. A rapid-paced cascade of bizarre, adventurous and never less than hilarious mishaps ensues, involving golf balls, bones, dogs, leopards and the recurring musical theme “I can’t give you anything but love, baby”. A celebration! (mg)
