Did you know that bisexual actors Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made four films together during the golden age of Hollywood? Now, you can experience their magic screen chemistry at MOMI Moviehouse: The Complete Hepburn & Grant series!
This series is dedicated to screen legends Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, and includes their beloved comedy classics Bringing Up Baby, Holiday, Sylvia Scarlett, and The Philadelphia Story—all presented in 35mm!
MOMI is dedicating much of its Fall slate of Moviehouse to the collaborations of screen legends Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant in honor of the 85th anniversary of two of their most beloved films. But there’s simply never a wrong occasion for these timeless screwball comedies.
In addition to those two 1938 classics, Howard Hawks’s Bringing Up Baby (which features Grant’s immortal drag scene) and George Cukor’s Holiday, MOMI will also present their first film and last films together, Sylvia Scarlett (which features Hepburn’s drag role) and The Philadelphia Story—both directed by gay director Cukor.
Somehow, all were completed in the short window between 1935 and 1940, after which World War II forever changed the nature of screen roles for men and women.
