Editorial Reviews

Cary Grant was born Archibald Leach in Bristol, England. Tall, dark and debonair, Grant was the quintessential leading man. Appearing in more classic movies than anyone else, he starred in multiple films for such world-class directors as Alfred hitchcock, Howard Hawks, George Stevens and Leo McCarey. Sophisticated, cool and charming, Cary Grant was a class act, arguably the greatest movie star of all time.

This film is a must-have for any film buff.

Cary Grant Grant is always a delight and when opposite Rosalind Russell, Jean Arthur or Katherine Hepburn who can go wrong.

As for the box set itself, I'm very happy with the movies chosen to be included.

I do agree with all of the Holiday issues-it should be released on a separate disc, and that is why this set is not rated 5 stars. However, the movies in the set are all GREAT. They are some of the best of Cary Grant and all of the other reviewers seem to completely ignore that. If you don't have two or three of the movies aside from Holiday, I would highly suggest this set-it is most certainly worth it. For those who already own three of the four previously released, I would think about how much I really loved Holiday before buying this.

A quick rundown of the movies in this set (for those who do not already know about them.):

His Girl Friday (1940)-a hilarious comedy, one of Cary Grant's best, is an update of The Front Page with Rosalind Russell as reporter Hildy who is attempting to leave Grant's newspaper to get married. Great comedic timing and perfomances turn this into an instant classic-and one of AFI's top 20 American comedies of all time. Directed by Howard Hawks, this is the best of the set (in my opinion).

Only Angels Have Wings (1939)-another funny one, also directed by Howard Hawks, with Jean Arthur as Cary's love interest, is an Andes Mountain adventure of planes and past loves and lots of comedic drama. It flows very smoothly and provides great entertainment from beginning to end. It has a great supporting cast-Thomas Mitchell, Richard Barthelmess, a young and beautiful Rita Hayworth-and thrilling suspense. A great movie.

Holiday (1938)-one of the four Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn movies, not their best (The Philadelphia Story and Bringing Up Baby are even better) but still wonderful. It is touching and funny, with tender and sweet moments, and more of a love story than the others in this set.

Format: DVD
The idea of putting a collection of a screen star's films is always a great idea, but most of the time it doesn't follow through (Exhibit A: The James Stewart Signature Collection. As much as, well, everybody loves Jimmy Stewart, did we really need "The Cheyenne Social Club"??). That is hardly the case here. Included are essential Cary Grant films, both classic (His Girl Friday), underrated (Only Angels Have Wings) or unreleased (Holiday), his breakthrough role (The Awful Truth), and a charming social comedy (The Talk of the Town).

*THE AWFUL TRUTH: Jerry (Grant) and Lucy Warriner (Irene Dunne) both think that they have caught each other in infidelity (He returns home from a "business trip" from Florida with oranges from California, She comes back arm in arm with her French voice teacher), so they divorce each other, with 90 days until the thing becomes final. In those 90 days, she dates a sweet, bumbling oil man from Texas (Ralph Bellamy, who made a career out of playing the guy who loses the girl to Cary Grant, see HIS GIRL FRIDAY), and he romances an heiress. As their divorce's final date gets closer and closer, they realize that they're not ready to let each other go...leading to screwball results. This is the film that established Cary as a genuine star, a romantic leading man. His rapport with Irene Dunne is magical, and she's hysterical, especially towards the end when she tries to embarrass his stuffy fiancee's family by pretending to be his boozy sister "Lola Warriner." But beneath the laughs lie a deep understanding of marriage and the melancholy of love, leading to one of the cleverest ending shots in history.

*HIS GIRL FRIDAY: Undoubtably the funniest, fastest film ever made.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Usually makers of a boxed set of films featuring one artist will put at least one bad or mediocre film in with the rest. This is not the case with this boxed set. All of the films are excellent, and there are featurettes included for all of the movies. Only His Girl Friday gets a commentary track though.

This is the Region 1 debut of Holiday on DVD. It pairs Katherine Hepburn with Cary Grant in a film that is a bit out of step with its time (1938) in that it ponders the wisdom of endlessly pursuing wealth at a time when such thoughts were considered almost un-American. Grant plays a man who becomes engaged to a woman and only later finds out she is the member of a fabulously wealthy family and that he, once a part of the family, will be expected to go to work in the family business and count money for the rest of his life. This is out of step with Grant's character's view on what he wants his future to be, but in step with his fiancee's sister's view of life played by Hepburn.
Extras:
Cary at Columbia featurette
Deleted Scenes Photographs

Only Angels Have Wings (1939) pairs Grant with Jean Arthur. This is a drama/romance with only a few light moments in which Grant plays a pilot and the manager of a small burgeoning South American airline. Arthur is an entertainer who meets Grant and decides he is interesting enough that she wants to know him better so she intentionally misses her boat back to the states. Add in the complication of Grant's old flame (Rita Hayworth) showing up as the wife of a disgraced pilot who is looking for a second chance, and you have the makings of a very good film.
Extras:
"Angels: Made in Heaven" featurette

The Talk of the Town (1942) is another chance for Grant to play working class hero opposite Jean Arthur.
