inside the mind



A charming, frenetic comedy with two of my favorite actors, Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn.

Grant plays an absentminded paleontologist, engaged to marry a woman who informs him their marriage is to be a companionship focused on his work - and his work only. No honeymoon. "No children?" Grant asks, and is rebuffed. No children. And it's broadly implied there will be no attempting thereof, either.

At the same time, Grant receives an important find - the bone he needs to complete the brontosaurus he's been assembling. He also has a golf outing with an attorney to attend, wherein he needs to charm the attorney into advising his client to donate $1 million to Grant's museum.

Things are a little hectic for Grant, to be sure. They become even moreso when he runs into Hepburn. Through a series of misunderstandings, talking over each other and general mayhem, they end up chasing around Connecticut in true screwball comedy style.
