What’s Up, Doc?

Part of our Screwball Comedy Series

Emerging in the 1930s, Screwball Comedies were a wild new strain of fast-talking farces involving battles of the sexes and a world forever on the brink of chaos.  We’ve curated five hilarious films that exemplify the genre.

We’ll delve into what makes a great Screwball Comedy, the production, artists, and story of each film.

Watch the movie and stay for a talk and Q&A with Jeffrey Bender.

Two researchers have come to San Francisco to compete for a research grant in music. The man seems a bit distracted, and that was before he met a strange woman who has devoted her life to confusing and embarrassing him. At the same time a woman has her jewels stolen and a government whistle blower arrives with his stolen top secret papers.
