Capital Celluloid - Day 58: Sunday Feb 27, 2011

Man's Favourite Sport (Hawks, 1964): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 5.40pm

This has no real right to succeed but Hawks' generosity to his characters and plucky playing from Paula Prentiss and Rock Hudson in the Hepburn-Grant roles of this reworking of the classic screwball comedy Bringing Up Baby make it worthwhile for more than just Hawks aficionados. I caught up with it again recently and was surprised how much I was enjoying it by the time the bonkers conclusion rolls around.

Here is the trailer.
