This documentary is a fascinating portrait of Cary Grant, an amazing man and one of the all-time great screen presences. "Cary Grant: A Class Apart" goes back to the actor's sad childhood, his entrance into vaudeville, Broadway work, and finally film, where he slowly began to build the "Cary Grant" persona. And persona it was, well crafted and beautifully portrayed.
The documentary features interviews with two of Grant's wives, Betsy Drake and Barbara Grant, his widow, and several directors and costars. Grant emerges as a hard working professional, somewhat remote, but obviously well liked and appreciated.
We won't see the likes of Cary Grant again, so if you get a chance to watch this, do so.
