Cary Grant: Dark Angel

Front Cover
Arcade, Nov 15, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 192 pages
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.”

It's always a pleasure looking at this face. This is a light biography that manages to tell just enough about the man that a stranger should know, and not too invasive. There is a complete filmography listed at the back. Read full review
