I promised you a bit of sophistication and here you have it - Cary Grant!
He was George Clooney before George Clooney... or rather George is a modern day Cary Grant.
And as far as I can see Cary was more or less perfect - lets examine the facts:
Tall - check
Dark - check
Handsome - check
Charming - check
Funny - check
Sometimes a little bit sinister - check
He'd have been a good James Bond wouldn't he?
Now seen as nobody is perfect (except me of course! ;-) ) it does make you wonder in what way was Cary Grant not perfect?
But maybe we shouldn't answer that question - maybe we should just leave him as he is...
By the way of the Cary Grant films that I have seen so far, which is quite a few, my favourite is Arsenic and Old Lace (however I do still have quite a few films to see).
Although one of my favourite Cary Grant lines is in the film His Girl Friday when Cary Grant's character says:
The last person to say that to me was Archie Leach...
Don't understand why I like that line? Or why it made me laugh?
Cary Grant was born Archibald Leach...
