SYNOPSIS

What’s Up, Doc? will screen from an archival 35mm print.

‘A luggage mix-up leads to stuffy academic Ryan O’Neal being taken on a wild ride by free spirit Barbra Streisand in this outrageous farce. Working from a precise and hilarious script by Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton, director Peter Bogdanovich crafts a tribute to 1930s screwball comedies that is fast, funny and packed with delirious supporting performances; Madeline Kahn is a standout in her screen debut.’ American Cinematheque
