Bringing Up Baby
Bringing Up Baby tells the story of a paleontologist in a number of predicaments involving a scatterbrained woman and a leopard named Baby.

At a golf outing with his potential benefactors, Huxley is spotted by Susan Vance who decides that she must have the reserved scientist at all costs. She uses her pet leopard, Baby, to trick him into driving to her Connecticut home, where a dog wanders into Huxley';;;s room and steals the vital last bone that he needs to complete his project.
