What's Up, Doc? (Peter Bogdanovich, USA, 1972)

Acontemporary comedy in the screwball 1930s style, with absolutely no socially relevant values. This picture is a total smash... [with] literally reels of pure, unadulterated and sustained laughs.
— Variety

Barbara Streisand and Ryan O’Neal star in Peter Bogdanovich’s homage to classic screwball comedies. 

Written by the incredible combo of Robert Benton, David Newman and film club favourite Buck Henry, the film revolves around the accidental mix-up of four identical plaid overnight bags which leads to a series of increasingly wild and wacky situations. 

A critical, as well as commercial success, What’s Up Doc? became the third highest grossing film of the year in the US, ranking behind The Godfather and The Poseidon Adventure.
