Screwball Comedies Journey

Movie still from Bringing Up Baby film

We think it’s safe to say that we all could use a laugh right now. That’s why we’ve decided to explore some of the great screwball comedies of the classic Hollywood era for our next monthly Journey. In addition to our personal picks, we polled our Founding Members and asked for their favorites. And while we couldn’t pick them all, we feel the following lineup represents some of the greatest talent in the genre including Cary Grant, Irene Dunne, Carole Lombard, Jean Harlow, William Powell, and Myrna Loy.

In the spirit of the beloved New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, we present you with the following double features, spread out over three weeks:

    • Chapter Two: Jean & Irene (& Melvin, Myrna, William, & Spencer)
