Katherine Hepburn in two AFI favorites

The AFI top 100 films gets closer to being complete on DVD with the release of Bringing up Baby from Warner Home Entertainment. Warner brings more Hepburn with a new 2-disc special edition of The Philadelphia Story.

In Bringing up Baby, all the earnest paleontoligist wants is an intercostal clavicle to complete his brontosaurus skeleton. What he gets is an out-of-control toboggan ride with a scatterbrained heiress nuts about him (or maybe just nuts). Riding along are a dog named George, a leopard named Baby, a snooty society matron with a spare million, a caretaker on the sauce and more.

Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and James Stewart star in the masterful comedy Philadelphia about a faultfinding, bride-to-be socialite who gets her comeuppance.

No details on the features for either disc, but they will both be available on March 1st with a suggested retail price of $26.99.
