Personal Quote:

[on Cary Grant] To women, he is Hollywood's lone example of the Sexy Gentlemen. And to men and women, he is Hollywood's lone example of a figure America, like most of the West, has needed all along: a Romantic Bourgeois Hero. See more »

Trivia:

Frequently wore double-breasted white suits and silk ties, even when interviewing gang members and criminals: "I found early in the game that for me there's no use trying to blend in. I might as well be the village information-gatherer, the man from Mars who simply wants to know. Fortunately the world is full of people with information-compulsion who want to tell you their stories". See more »
