Presenting the Past

Immortal Idol Cary Grant, once again shows his background in acrobatics and slap-stick in this delightful comedy classic. Starring along with legendary Ginger Rogers as his wife, Edwina. Has the Chemist Dr. Barnaby Fulton (Cary Grant) found the magic concoction to reverse the aging process? At least he and his wife have fun experimenting it.  Also starring in this hilarious romp is my all time favorite Marilyn Monroe, sparkling in one of her earliest roles. Oh! And there’s monkeys too!

I actually re-watched it last night because it had been so long since I’ve seen it. Here I sat, after working all day, tired…  really just wanting to go to bed but decided to have a fresh perspective on the movie. I’m so glad I watched it again! I literally laughed out loud at some of Cary Grant’s scenes and fell in love with him all over again.
