Editorial Reviews

Review

Dapper and debonair, romantic and yet a regular guy with a goofy sense of humor, on screen Cary Grant had everything, or at least enough to keep him a star of the first magnitude for some thirty years. Abundant proof is available in Cary Grant: The Leading Man. . . This one provides a genuine touch of class. --The New York Times

An excellent overview of the life of Cary Grant, who entered the world in Bristol, England as Archibald Alexander Leach, and emigrated as a teenager to America, and later Tinsel Town itself, where he would be one of Hollywood s leading men for a remarkable span of 30 years. An intriguing biography, originally shown on cable television, Cary Grant: The Leading Man is highly recommended. Four Stars --Video Librarian

Since this DVD release was originally produced for a television series The Hollywood Collection, its presentation is direct and episodic. …Cary Grant: The Leading Man is a recommended purchase. --Educational Media Reviews Online

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Cary Grant..still our leading man June 16, 2011
Format:DVD
Although the more-recent Cary Grant documentary "A Class Apart" (which is included as an extra on the Blu-ray release of "North By Northwest") has kind of negated this earlier 1988 documentary special, CARY GRANT: THE LEADING MAN is a good retrospective of the star who still epitomizes male masculinity and romance in the movies.

Initially pegged by producers as just a "walking prop" to which they attached such vibrant leading ladies as Mae West and Sylvia Sidney, Cary Grant forged his own identity through hard work; soon establishing himself as the leading male star of choice for screwball and romantic comedy heroes. Opposite Katharine Hepburn, Grant sparkled in "Sylvia Scarlett", "Bringing Up Baby", "Holiday" and "The Philadelphia Story". In "His Girl Friday", Grant played the no-nonsense newspaper editor who wins the heart of former wife Rosalind Russell all over again; and Irene Dunne was his leading lady for "The Awful Truth" (regarded as quite possibly the best screwball comedy ever made), in addition to the poignant melodrama "Penny Serenade". Perhaps most importantly, Cary Grant became one of the first actors to go freelance, at a time when most actors were under contract to specific studios.

In "None But the Lonely Heart", Grant earned an Academy Award nomination, playing against type as a man with a criminal past, trying to make amends with his ill mother. Hitchcock transformed Cary Grant in the 1940's as a suave man-of-the-world with a sexy, dangerous edge, in such classics as "Suspicion" and "Notorious".

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great series. May 10, 2013
By Anne
Format:Amazon Instant Video
All of the biographies in this series are very well done! Photographs and interviews rarely seen before are included in these documentaries that give greater insight into the person being profiled. Gary Grant has a much more interesting history than I imagined.

I really enjoyed watching this and reading his biography. He was a man of many layers but a professional actor. He had a lot of discipline with his instrument (body) and lived a good life. So handsome and complexed.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you loved Cary Grant, don't miss this one! February 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Yes, this bio is 25 years old and we know more about Cary Grant today than we did then, based on other biographies of him as well as autobiographies of Dyan Cannon and others who were close to Grant. But I thought this documentary was excellent and I had a great time watching it. There's so much in it that I never knew, and I had fun seeing clips of so many of his films, including some of my favorites. If you enjoy movie classics and appreciated Cary Grant's range of talent, grab your popcorn -- you'll like this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and Well Done January 5, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Very fairly portrayed and well done. It offers a glimpse into the world of a man who was very well known on screen, but ever so private off of it. Nice to watch.
