Great editing job, and equally great choice of song to accompany it!
I love this. I had already found it and watched it a couple of times. Great job, Ilsa!
Simply wonderful. What's the name of that great Aretha Franklin track?
"I Never Loved a Man (The Way that I love You)"
This is great! It's amazing how he could almost act with only facial expressions. How do you get the film clips to do this?
Sorry for the long delay; I downloaded a program called Hand Brake that allows you to download film clips from your DVD drive, then I imported them to my video editing program (in this case iMovie HD), and I uploaded it onto both YouTube and this lovely website andvoila!
I think I'd have to say "Philadelphia Story," "North by Northwest," and "Notorious." It's hard to choose!
I'm with you on "North by Northwest" and "Notorious," but I went for "Holiday" and "Mr. Lucky" because they're less well-known generally, and so for me, the performances are that much richer.
I love his comedic timing. One of the first classic movies I ever remember watching as a child was Bringing Up Baby. I still love that amazingly silly movie! Other favorite Grant performances are in: The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, The Awful Truth, His Favorite Wife, Gunga Din, The Talk of the Town, Notorious, The Philadelphia Story, I Was a Male War Bride.
I agree with everyone that said it's difficult to only pick one favorite... but I have to say Charade, only because it was my first Cary Grant film. I fell in love with him immediately. <3 <3 <3
Cary Grant is always so wonderful! It's impossible to pick an absolute favorite. I really love him in The Awful Truth, but I also love The Philadelphia Story, An Affair to Remember, Penny Serenade and In Name Only.
An Affair to Remember (cry every time)
The Grass is Greener (hilarious!)
His Girl Friday (who can talk that fast? perfect comedic timing between him and Roz Russell)
Penny Serenade, The Awful Truth, My Favorite Wife (Irene Dunne & Cary are amazing together)
Bringing Up Baby

Cary Grant is my all time favorite male star! I just finished reading his biography by Marc Eliot -- highly recommend ... it was difficult to read about his sad childhood and rough beginnings. It's hard to imagine Cary struggled so much in his personal life when all his movies made the audience hysterical!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
