It's one thing to meet a contemporary star (ho-hum), but to meet an icon who you worshiped growing up...particularly when they take you by surprise....

 

Here's a Cary Grant anecdote from my memoir, MY FORTY-FIVE YEARS IN HOLLYWOOD AND HOW I ESCAPED ALIVE:

 

I was writing a book about vintage movies and I sent letters to a number of Hollywood personalities requesting interviews. The very next morning after I mailed them, my phone rang and the voice on the other end said, “Is this Michael Druxman?”


“Yes,” I replied.


“One moment for Cary Grant.”


The next voice that I heard was Cary Grant’s.


I just wonder if that was the first time that Cary Grant ever had a phone conversation with somebody whose every other sentence was “Ah…Ah…Ah…”?


Maybe he thought I was going to sneeze.


Did I feel like a putz after that one!

IMDb says the same - attributed to James Mason character - so I've changed it and thanks for pointing that out.

As I remember it, James Mason says it at the movie's climactic scene when Martin Landau is shot by the federal agents (park rangers?), taking his foot off of Cary Grant's hand. I would guess you're thinking about the meeting in the woods, after the fake shooting in the cafeteria. But that's not what they say.I had to go back and look again, though. You had me thinking...

"The line "That wasn't very sporting, using real bullets" was actually spoken by James Mason's character."

Are you certain? I'm sure I heard Cary say it when I watched it again recently.

The line "That wasn't very sporting, using real bullets" was actually spoken by James Mason's character, not Cary Grant to Eva Marie Saint (unless it was something you meant to be funny).

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 […]
