“you say everybody wants to be cary grant? even I want to be cary grant.” – cary grant
he’s the most self-invented man in movies this side of charlie chaplin. like chaplin, cary grant grew up poor and trained as an acrobat. he brimmed with confidence, romance and a spirit of merry larceny — he just had a better tailor. his impeccable timing and light, cat burglar’s touch at stealing women’s hearts were perfect for the jaunty heroics and romantic farce of such classic films as an affair to remember, notorious, his girl friday, north by northwest, bringing up baby and to catch a thief. in the end, the role became the man — he had ceased to play “cary grant” and simply was cary grant. one could wish no man any greater happiness than that.
