(Howard Hawks, 1952)
A reworking of his screwball classic Bringing Up Baby, Howard Hawks’s Monkey Business stars Cary Grant as a mild-mannered scientist working on an anti-aging elixir. When a chimpanzee breaks loose in the lab and remixes the chemicals, anarchy ensues for all who take the formula including Grant, who suddenly can’t resist his boss’s secretary, played by Marilyn Monroe!
