"The name above was all my dad wrote on this post card but it now comes to me that he used to swap pictures with a fan named Bernard.
Be that as it may, today's cat trainers don't quite have yesterday's flair!

One of the most famous films of all times is BRINGING UP BABY, a 1938 comedy starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. The “Baby” referred to in the title is a leopard which was sent to Miss Hepburn’s character by her brother and which is initially seen running loose in her apartment. (Scenes showing the leopard roaming around freely were filmed on sets enclosed inside a huge cage, with the camera and sound picked up through holes in the fencing. Miss Hepburn was generally fearless around the young leopard who played “Baby” and even enjoyed petting it. The leopard’s trainer later said that she could have become an animal trained had she so desired.

Cary Grant was less fond of working with the leopard. As a gag, Miss Hepburn put a stuffed leopard through a vent in the top of his dressing room. “He was out of there like lightning,” she later wrote in her autobiography ME: STORIES OF MY LIFE.

The film used a great deal of split screen effects and other optical tricks to minimize the number of scenes where the actors had to work in close proximity to the leopard. Here the leopard is rear-projected in behind the stars. (Cary Grant’s character was modeled on silent film comedian Harold Lloyd and Grant even wore glasses like Lloyd had worn.)
