Bringing Up Baby is a screwball comedy about a paleontologist, David (Cary Grant) involved with a scatterbrained woman, Susan (Katherine Hepburn) and a tame leopard named Baby, given to Susan by her fiance. George has a brontosaurus skeleton that is missing one bone, which Susan's dog, George (Asta from the Thin Man) buries. David and Susan try to recover the bone and Baby, who got away. Meanwhile, a psychiatrist believes that both of them are off their nut and have them put in jail. Susan escapes. While she is gone, George leads baby to the jail. A few minutes later Susan comes baby with a leopard at the end of a rope, not realizing that it is not Baby, but a dangerous circus animal. George corrals the wild leopard into one of the jail cells and saves the day. Several weeks later, Susan finds David (who has been jilted by Alice because of her) working on his brontosaurus reconstruction at the museum. After giving him the missing bone (which she found by trailing George), she tells him she has persuaded her aunt to make the large donation. Against his advice, Susan climbs a tall ladder next to the dinosaur to be closer to him. When the ladder starts swaying from side to side dangerously, she climbs onto the skeleton. Before it collapses, David grabs her hand. Surveying the wreckage of his work, David gives up and admits that he cannot live without her.
