C is For... Cary Grant

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...

Cary Grant was born at Bristol where I grew up, I saw the house he was born which had a plaque.

Good post,

Maybe his real name was his imperfection.
