Description


By 1937, Cary Grant had invented a man-of-the-world, the epitome of sophistication, class, and refinement. In his words, "I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me. Or we met at some point."This fizzy cocktail of a book lifts the veil off the debonair screen persona to reveal a real-life man full of inconsistencies and incongruities. It provides an unvarnished portrait of someone constantly in conflict - antic, serious, funny, poised, and a romantic who struggled in his own love life. You get a little history and a bit of sociology. But the most fun comes from an abundant helping of bon mots. His contemporaries as well as subsequent observers have plenty to say about the man who became Cary Grant. And his own undisguised words provide a sublime, truthful, and candid portrait of a curiously uncommon character.
