Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Greatest movie star ever? How can you argue against Cary Grant, the graceful clown, the ironic romantic? Equally at home in an Alfred Hitchcock suspense piece or a Howard Hawks screwball comedy, the superb Mr. Grant (born Archie Leach) could handle just about anything. And it's a testament to his appeal that this boxed set, which contains not a single great movie, is nevertheless an entertaining catalog of Grant's splendid run during the 1940s.

The earliest picture, and a sheer delight, is 1940's My Favorite Wife, one of Grant's blissful pairings with the wonderful Irene Dunne. He's about to remarry when his first wife washes up again after having been lost on a desert island (with he-man Randolph Scott) for seven years. Destination Tokyo is a WWII submarine picture, with Grant as the stalwart skipper--slightly odd casting, but he brings it off with admirable professionalism. (The film's propagandistic jabs at demonizing the Japanese enemy have not aged well.)

Night and Day is one of those composer biographies that veers rather radically from reality, with Grant playing Cole Porter. A ton of great songs and the canny casting of Cary as the champagne-sophisticate Porter make it passably de-lovely, despite the whitewash of the composer's real-life story. The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer puts Grant in deliciously antic mode, mooned over by teenager Shirley Temple but preferring the company of her older sister, Myrna Loy. He re-teams with Loy in Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, an artless but regularly hilarious tale of Manhattanites whose Connecticut fixer-upper becomes a money pit. --Robert Horton

3.0 out of 5 stars THE ELEGANT MR. GRANT - NEVER OUT OF STYLE June 1, 2004
By Nix Pix
Format:DVD
This Signature Series effectively brings together some stellar examples of the suave, urbane sophistication and light-hearted good humor that was Cary Grant. However, the absence of "Bringing Up Baby" and "Dream Wife" from this DVD collection is - quite simply - inexcusable! Having said that, this box set is comprised of 3 hilarious comedies (Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, My Favorite Wife, The Bachelor and the Bobby-soxer), one highly enjoyable musical (Night & Day) and one thrilling WWII drama (Destination Tokyo). "Mr. Blandings" is a sort of 1940s rendition of "The Money Pit" - about a couple desperately trying to build their dream house despite overwhelmingly hilarious adversity. It co-stars Melvyn Douglas and Myrna Loy. "My Favorite Wife" is the most outstanding of the three comedies. It stars Irene Dunne (who previously costarred with Grant in "The Awful Truth"), as Grant's wife - presumed dead at the start of the film, but resurfacing shortly thereafter to throw a monkey wrench into Grant's second marriage to Gail Patrick. "The Bachelor and The Bobby-soxer" is a quaint romantic triangle between Grant, Shirley Temple and Myrna Loy. He's a playboy writer unwillingly and romantically tied to a 17-year-old schoolgirl (Temple) but more interested in her older sister (Loy). "Night & Day" is the outstanding and tuneful musical loosely based on the life of composer, Cole Porter. Actually, there's no hint of Porter's real life in it at all, other than Grant assigned to play the flamboyantly homosexual real-life man as a playfully womanizing heterosexual. Faux reality aside, the film contains wonderful production numbers to some wonderful tunes including "You're The Top" sung by Grant and "My Heart Belongs to Daddy", a Mary Martin specialty that stops the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value Pack September 13, 2004
By Serrano
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This 5 Pack DVDs would cost around $80 if bought separately. They are all great movies with good image and sound quality. Some extras include the movies radio shows, some 12 Grant Trailers, a couple of nice cartoons and a couple of shorts, one of them pretty old and interesting. For the price it's a Great Deal

4.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Cary Grant January 7, 2005
Format:DVD
A very good collection of Grant films. 3 are five star films. Mr. Blandings, The Bachelor, and My Favorite Wife are bonafide classics and three of the more memorable Grant comedies. That being said, Destination Tokyo and Night and Day are decent fims. They are definitely worth watching if you are a fan of classic cinema or of Cary Grant but neither are his finest and should not be in a set entitled "Cary Grant Signature Collection". Three 5 star films and two 3 star films.

4.0 out of 5 stars More great Grant May 13, 2004
Format:DVD
As one review indicated maybe this isn't a Signature Cary Grant set. However; these movies were not previously available on DVD so I am happy to get them. I had some of these on VHS as well as "Bringing Up Baby", which I hope will be on DVD soon. These are all great Grant movies from the 1940s. I especially like Mr. Blandings Builds his Dreamhouse with Myrna Loy, Destination Tokyo with John Garfiled, and The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer with Myrna Loy and Shirley Temple. Two of any of these movies are worth the price of the set alone, so I suggest you grab it while you can. Some of these sets tend to go out of print from time to time. A Marx Brothers DVD set I bought last year is no longer available. If you enjoy comedies you will especially appreciate this set since most of them are comedies. "Destination Tokyo" is a great WWII submarine drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Go Wrong.....It's Cary Grant January 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this set a couple of months ago. All of the movies are clean and easy to watch over and over again. Each movie comes in a seperate case and all five go into a cardboard holder. I like this much better than the Cary Grant: Screen Legend Collection which I have also.(Those movies are in a simple cardboard case, not individual cases.) Anyone who likes Mr. Grant will like this collection. PERIOD

5.0 out of 5 stars A delighted Cary Grant admirer February 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 30 year old granddaughter who LOVES Cary Grant. She was ectastic to receive it - she especially loves Mr. Blandings builds his dream house. It is fun to see the younger generation (at least 30 is young to me!) enjoying these old movies that I loved when I was their age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection! September 24, 2008
Format:DVD
I LOVEloveLOVE this set of movies! I'm a huge Cary Grant fan. 2 of my CG faves are in this set. For the price, you really cannot go wrong.

In Mr Blandings, it's so much fun to see CG play a perpetually frustrated husband and father going through a crazy house renovation once they decide to move their family from their crowded city apt to a roomier home in the country. Unfortunately, their purchase did not quite work out as planned. (Think "The Money Pit", which was based loosely on Mr Blandings.)

Another one of my faves, The Bachelor & the Bobby-Soxer, has an adorable teenaged Shirley Temple falling in infatuation with CG. Hilarity ensues when CG becomes involved with Myrna Loy, who plays Shirley Temple's big sister in an unrelated storyline. Great fun!
My Favorite Wife is another fun one in which CG's presumed-dead wife resurfaces after having been shipwrecked for years with another man at the same time that CG is about to remarry.

Night & Day is a lovely but largely inaccurate portrayal of the story of Cole Porter. Inaccuracies aside, it's a little slow but CG sings in it!

Destination Tokyo is a war pic about the Doolittle raid, the time right after Pearl Harbor was bombed. Not my kind of thing, but it rounds out the set well.
