Cary Grant - Screen legend of yesterday

Cary Grant
January 18, 1904 - November 29, 1986

Not finding that much interesting on TV while growing up, I found myself a staple in the local video store. In the inner depths resided two full aisles dedicated to the classics, from directors like Alfred Hitchcock, John Ford, Billy Wilder, Frank Capra, and Elia Kazan. Actors like James Stewart, Charles Chaplin, Henry Fonda, Peter Sellers, Spencer Tracy & Cary Grant.

A new world opened up and one in particular individual stood out - Cary Grant. A rare actor, who was originally considered as a possibility to play James Bond in Dr. No, also considered one of the best-dressed men in the United States of America. Grant's ease in acting, enabled him to jump from slap stick comedy to Hitchcock thrillers.

Hopefully some of the youtube videos below will tempt you to either re-visit some of Cary Grants movies, or even better introduce you to his genius.

If you never had the chance to see any movies by Grant, here's a few you must see:
