The 28 Year Old Cary Grant
26 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In this second film that the 28 year old Cary Grant acted in titled 'Sinners in the Sun', Grant was cast alongside Carole Lombard who would go on to act in Hitchcock's 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith', in the same way that Grant would go on to act in Hitchcock's 'Suspicion'. It was a terrible film, but obviously Grant was a diamond in the rough at this stage.
