I am a huge fan of Cary Grant. He is my favorite actor from classic Hollywood. Cary was great in all kinds of movies, everything from comedy to romance to drama to suspense. His credits include The Awful Truth, Bringing Up Baby, His Girl Friday, My Favorite Wife, The Philadelphia Story, Arsenic and Old Lace, Notorious, To Catch A Thief (my favorite movie of his), An Affair to Remember, North by Northwest, That Touch of Mink, Charade, etc.
He was a handsome and talented actor. Cary had such great style. He was so suave and debonair. He was one of those men that had good looks and a sense of humor. He could make a girl laugh just as often as he could make her fall in love. He wasn't afraid to take on the Hollywood studio system. Cary was the first actor to pick his own movies, directors & co-stars. He also took a percentage of the gross from his films. He did not want the studios to control every aspect of his life like they did for the other stars of that era. Nominated twice for Academy Awards, he was finally honored in 1970 with a Lifetime Achievement Oscar. Alfred Hitchcock, who couldn't care less for actors, said that Cary was the only actor he ever loved. There are so many things about Cary that I admire. Cary Grant is definitely one of my top idols of all time.
