I came across this interesting piece on Bringing Up Baby, “Bringing Up Bride – Gender, Class, and Marriage in Screwball Comedy.” Lots of good points here, including thinking of the screwball comedy genre as a kind of end run around the Hays code. I came across this point in several other places, but omitted it from my review.
