WHAT'S UP, DOC?
Peter Bogdanovich's 1972 homage to classic screwball comedy sees the exceedingly clever, carefree and calamity-causing Barbra Streisand set her sights on punctilious musicologist Ryan O'Neal, in San Francisco to attend a conference and hoping to earn a coveted grant. Witty wordplay (from screenwriters Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton) and Bogdanovich's agile handling of the gags allow the stars to shine, with Madeline Kahn (in her screen debut) leading an impressively funny cast of supporting players. DIR/PROD Peter Bogdanovich; SCR Buck Henry, David Newman, Robert Benton. U.S., 1972, color, 94 min. RATED G
