Storyline

Cary Grant was the very essence of a movie star - a man every woman loved and every man wanted to be. His deft comic style merged easily with his strength as a romantic leading man. The actor's suave exterior, however, concealed a complex and often sensitive individual. Cary's painful journey from his lonely working-class beginnings to the peak of Hollywood royalty is made vivid through family photos, archival footage, clips from many of his films - including his first, following his discovery by blonde bombshell Mae West, starring role in She Done Him Wrong.

Cary Grant: Hollywood's Leading Man
13 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Biography: Cary Grant: Hollywood's Leading Man (1993)

Gregory Peck, Peter Bogdanovich, Dina Merrill and biographer Nancy Nelson are among the people who help with this episode, which shines the light on screen legend Cary Grant.

As with most episodes in the series, this one here is certainly very entertaining and at the same time it does a very good job at giving viewers a quick education on the subject. This does a very good job at covering the early life of the actor, his move to Hollywood, his rise to stardom and of course everything that happened after that. If you're a fan of Grant then you'll certainly enjoy this episode and it was great getting to hear from the likes of Peck as well as Bogdanovich who befriended the actor later in his life.
