What's Up, Doc?

From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.

Howard Bannister (O'Neal) is in San Francisco at a musicologist convention, competing for a research grant. He meets a screwy but intellectual student, Judy Maxwell (Barbra Streisand), and the two strike a connection, and for Judy it's love at first sight. Add to the plot a case of mistaken and stolen goods, and what remains is a wildly successful screwball sendup, the highest grossing film ever directed by Peter Bogdanovich. Its success lay largely in a rather esteemed crew of screenwriters, which included Buck Henry and Robert Benton.

Set and shot on location in San Francisco.

10 x 8 inches. About Near Fine.
