One of the best biographies/career retrospectives on any actor
26 January 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Part of my enjoying this biography I and career retrospectives was because I adored the films of Cary Grant. But, at the same time, I wanted a complete picture of the man--warts and all. That may not sound like a tall order, but it is. Too often, such films are fluff pieces--only praising the man and discussing only a few of their most famous films. However, in this case, while it extols him as an amazing actor (which he was), it also is able to give a balanced portrait of him as a man--something I really appreciated.

Well written and constructed and filled with great interviews (though I would have loved more archival footage of him), it's a must-see for fans of classic Hollywood.

By the way, you MUST pay attention to his ex-wife, Betsy Drake, as she discusses rumors of his being gay.
