Understanding the man
24 June 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This interesting documentary that TMC produced, under the direction of Robert Trachtenberg, is about as close we get to the myth that was Cary Grant. The film is helped a great deal by the elegant style in which the narrators, Helen Mirren and Jeremy Northam tell us about this man.

Nothing is spared. There are things in the documentary that other producers would have stayed away from, like Cary Grant's use of the drug LSD and his possible gay life. In a way, the only thing that makes a stronger statement about Mr. Grant being gay is the declaration of his former wife, actress Betsy Drake, about the star's sexual prowess. If Mr. Grant was so good in bed with her, why bother to tell us?

Mr. Grant was a luminous presence on the screen. He had such elegance, such sophistication that he was a natural for the medium. We made him an idol and he gave us back films that will live forever. This film is a perfect tribute to a man that endeared himself to all that ever went to see a Cary Grant film.
