Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers and Marilyn Monroe have some MONKEY BUSINESS on their minds...

Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers and Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn looks terrified of Ginger doesn't she?

A wonderful comedy that re-teams director Howard Hawks and star Cary Grant. The duo have worked magic before in other screwball classics like His Girl Friday (my all time favorite movie) and I Was A Male War Bride. In this one, Grant is absent minded chemist Barney Fulton who discovers a fountain of youth potion that he has been testing on chimps. Well he accidentally takes it himself and reverts to being a teen-ager. Which includes spending time with his gorgeous secretary Miss Lois Laurel (played by Marilyn Monroe). Well Mrs. Fulton (a sharp and funny Ginger Rogers) takes an even bigger dose and reverts even further to a 9 year old and all kinds of chaos ensues. Monkey Business is a hilarious comedy that lets the stars just have all the fun they want. A must see.
Monkey Business (1952).

  1. Oh, wonderful!

    Actually one of the worst haircuts Cary Grant ever had.. Have to re-watch that film very soon, now!

    Monty, you are the best - and being distracted by that Marilyn Monroe picture - well, no wonder! ;") It's awesome!


I really appreciate your comments - I'll read them all and if I can think of an answer I'll post it. :")
