Of course. At least for that scene where he's begging those child care administrators or something to not take away their baby girl, and how he cries so convincingly really gets to you. For that scene alone he should have won. Why my mother cried so much during that film that she swore she'd never see it again. And yes, i too shed a few tears.

Since we all love our Cary, you might grab his daughter Jennifer's book. It's called, GOOD STUFF.  It's a quick read and simply delightful!!  Anyone who loves Cary will love it... I laughed and cried and it's her version of him just as her Dad... They were very close and it's all through her eyes... I know you all would truly enjoy it!!  ( :

One of my all time favorite stars. the man was wonderful! Such a gift for both screwball/slapstick Comedy and romantic/tearjerker drama. Makes your sides split one day, the next day makes you well up in tears. How many actors do you see that are able to do both? He was truly remarkable. Remember PENNY SERENADE? one of the saddest pictures i've ever seen in my life. If i recall correctly, Cary was either nominated or won a best actor academy award for that one. his performance is one of his greatest. Moves one to tears. But remember HIS GIRL FRIDAY and MONKEY BUSINESS? Two of his GREATEST comedies, and he's just so extremely amusing and charismatic in his fast paced comedic roles. BOY!!!!

Cary Grant was the first classic film star i was a fan of. i admired (and still do) his wit, sophistication, elegance, wonderful sense of humor, his Charisma, and his simplicity on life (such as his famous "staircase" workout!). truly one of the greatest movie stars of all time!

He gave me an interview for my book on movie sequels.  We talked about the TOPPER films.

So why did Cary Grant phone you, Michael, and what did he say?

On the wall in my media room, I have a framed 11x14 lobby card from THE PRIDE AND THE PASSION (not my favorite film) signed by Cary Grant. 

 

It's authentic, so I guess that was not a hard/fast rule.

Just that voice, right? My Cary Grant moment came at our local theater, The Paradise, in Westchester, CA. They had many sneak previews there, one of which was "Walk, Don't Run", not my personal favorite. We would sometimes time it right to see the stars who attended, without a huge entourage. Mr Grant was there. I got a chance to ask for his autograph, which he very graciously declined "I don't give autographs, honey" or something along those lines. He could have said, "You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny." It wouldn't have mattered. He was royalty and so nice and that voice. I think I melted right there on the spot!

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 […]
