Seminar: Bringing Up Baby


“This is probably the silliest thing that ever happened to me” – David Huxley (Cary Grant).

Umass Boston professor Sarah Keller frames our screening of this quintessential screwball comedy with context on the genre, background about its production, and guided questions for critical spectators–whether you’re a first-time viewer or a long-time lover of this classic.
