Monkey Business | 1952 | Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers


Director Howard Hawks and Cary Grant reunited after Bringing Up Baby and I Was a Male War Bride for this screwball comedy. Grant plays Dr Barnaby Fulton, who’s searching for the elixir of youth. But when one of the lab monkeys escapes and mixes up some chemicals in the water cooler, the fun begins as Fulton regresses to his teen years, to the bemusement of his secretary Lois Laurel (Marilyn Monroe). Soon, he’s flirting with her. His wife Edwina (Ginger Rogers) is understandably upset, until she also takes a drink and becomes just as juvenile…
