Publisher Description

His signature jaw line and charismatic characters made him an American symbol. His films, including Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, and North by Northwest, were timeless classics. However, Grant was also married five times and sustained a tortured, obsessive relationship with money. In this beautifully illustrated and comprehensive book, Geoffrey Wansell traces the threads of both light and darkness in one of Holly-wood’s greatest stars. As his friend and co-star Deborah Kerr wrote, he was “one of the most outstanding personalities in the history of the cinema.”

Cart Grant, Dark Angel

I was fascinated reading about Cary Grant. Having only “ known” him for his screen performances, it was a good shock to read about his personal demons. He was very different, it appears in his private life. His sad relationship with his mother was unfortunate. But he kept trying to find that love she was incapable of giving. His role as a father was successful; too bad he couldn’t have had that experience a few years sooner. He seemed to have been much happier with his last marriage, probably owing to his maturity and no longer focused on building a career. I’d recommend reading.
