This chapter discusses Hawks’ working relationship with Carey Grant and Katharine Hepburn. He talks about his penchant for making the woman character the dominant figure in romantic relationships on screen, and the “Number Seven” method that he and Grant came up with when filming these scenes. He praises Grant’s work in His Girl Friday, Bringing Up Baby, and I Was A Male War Bride, and describes working with Ann Sheridan (on I Was A Male War Bride).

Keywords:   Grant, Hepburn, Number Seven, His Girl Friday, Bringing Up Baby, I Was A Male War Bride, Ann Sheridan
