Cary Grant and the alma mater of antimatter.

There was me, thinking that Bringing up Baby was a Ray Harryhausen flick about the fall of the Titan Kronos - and now it turns out to be a screwball comedy with Katharine Hepburn and Bristol's own Archibald Leach. Who knew?

Little-known fact: Cary Grant went to the same primary school as Paul Dirac (as did my daughter, briefly). Has there been another occasion on which a future Nobel Prize winner shared a playground with a future Oscar winner? Paul was Archie's senior by two years, but I still think Archie could have given him a Chinese burn.
