Monkey Business

12.30pm / Sat 12 November / Studio Cinema

Dir: Howard Hawks / USA 1952 / 1h 37mins

Cast: Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, Marilyn Monroe

In 1952, the dream team of Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, Ginger Rogers and director Howard Hawks united to give the world this oft-forgotten screwball classic. When Dr Fulton’s (Grant) potion for ‘rejuvenation’ is stolen by a lab monkey and dumped into the water supply, the bumbling chemist unknowingly drinks this elixir of youth, causing him to feel and act like his teenage self. With a smitten secretary Lois (Monroe), and wife Edwina (Rogers) also imbibing the concoction, the recipe is set for an explosive and hilarious chemical reaction!


The 2016 festival has been and gone.
