Classic screwball comedy about a zany socialite who causes a zoology professor to lose a valuable dinosaur bone and a baby leopard in the same evening.
It's all quite dated now, but the humour is still funny with dialogue a mile a minute, His Girl Friday style. A good advertisement for the genre which is now considered quite old-fashioned or almost obsolete.
