The Hollywood Collection: Cary Grant: The Leading Man

Cary Grant was the very essence of a movie star: a man every woman loved and every man wanted to be. His deft comic style merged easily with his strength as a romantic leading man. But the suave exterior concealed a complex and often sensitive individual.

The likes of which we shall Never see again...
Verified purchase
Gary Grant was no Olivier or Richard Burton. But there are many kinds of actors, such as James Dean, who will we shall never forget. Gary Grant had great talent which he used and grew furhter into. Altho this doco is based on his life it leaves out the very part we wish to hear more of - who was he deep inside, did he have any demons he wrestled with or was he simply always the suave, handsome, greatly humourous man we see on film and whom most of his friends knew as well? This film well mirrors his life with all the nagging questions. As a woman of course I am still entranced by his great looks, his whimsy, his humor, his gentlemanly manner but I too often want
to see if there's any scene yet in his acting bag that would blow me away, even today. Always on Earth our treasures are gone too soon and we shall never see the the likes of this fine man again.

Interesting but flawed.
Verified purchase
Interesting, but more of a chronicle of his films than an insight into his life. Skimming over his early days in New York without a mention of Orry-Kelly (who would become an Oscar-winning costume designer) or later his "close" relationship with Randolph Scott, made the documentary feel like a studio propaganda piece. Not bad, but hardly revealing.

Cary Grant ~ suave, debonaire, classy, talented
Verified purchase
I thought this documentary captured Cary Grant well. The first-person accounts and memories were insightful into this fabulous actor and person. Would that more of Hollywood followed suit. Less is more! He was correct in keeping his inner self and his public self as separate as possible. TMI about today's so-called stars. He and his generation had the genuine stars! Love every movie he did that I've had the pleasure of viewing.

I enjoyed this documentary
Verified purchase
Yes, I enjoyed this documentary. After all it is about Cary Grant, unforgettable, sophisticated, suave, brilliant and the most beautiful human being ever presented on the silver screen. There is an accuracy problem there, though. The producers showed a picture of Phyllis Brooks with the text, that it is Virginia Sherill .It is incorrect, and this should be corrected in the next edition of this documentary. Phyllis Brooks had a breathtakingly beautiful face, whereas Virginia Sherill was just pretty!

If you enjoy history like I do, you will enjoy this story of his life.

Dated but Still Enjoyable Walk Down Memory Lane with Cary Grant and Adoring Colleagues
Verified purchase
Jarring juxtaposition of harsh 80s color footage of less than debonair talking heads against historical and elegant mostly B&W clips of Grant through the years. Still, so many photos and clips of Cary Grant are worth a look.

Good Career Overview
Verified purchase
A quick overview of his career, but not in depth. It would take a lot more time - like mini-series length - to cover his life more thoroughly and more intimately.
