Because Cary Grant was terrified of Nissa II, (the leopard who played Baby in the film) a fake leopard or the effect of split screening would have to be used in almost all of the shots featuring both Grant and Nissa. Katharine Hepburn on the other hand, was not scared of the leopard at all, and would even pet him and handling her. One day Kate put a stuffed leopard through the vent over Grant’s dressing room, “He was out of there like lighting” she recalled.
