Which well-known Yalie made a cameo appearance in the popular 1938 film “Bringing up Baby?”







  1. Handsome Dan
  2. Peabody’s Pride
  3. Vincent Price
  4. Paul Mellon













Nicknamed “Peabody’s Pride,” Yale’s own Apatosaurus was selected as “the perfect monster” for a sequence calling for a “brontosaurus” skeleton in a museum sequence.  His co-stars were Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant.
