Leoparden küßt man nicht ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1938 and 2009 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Howard Hawks' rasante Screwball-Comedy aus dem Jahr 1938 ist eine ideale Spielwiese für die komödiantischen Naturtalente Cary Grant und Katherine Hepburn, die in dieser turbulenten Geschichte um Liebe, Eifersucht und experimentelle Haustierhaltung sämtliche Register ihres umfangreichen Könnens ziehen. Die schlafwandlerisch sichere Kombination aus Wortwitz, Stapstick und - teils improvisierter - Situationskomik ("Ich bin plötzlich schwul geworden!" schreit der grantige Grant eine alte Dame an, die mißmutig seinen Morgenrock mustert) hält auch heute noch jedem Vergleich stand.
