Cary Grant (1904 – 1986) – born Archie Leach in Bristol, England was a charming, talented actor who was the embodiment of a Hollywood MOVIE STAR during the Golden Age. However, he was a complicated man – married five times – insecure - parsimonious. Author Scott Eyman’s new biography gives us the charming, stylish, successful and self-invented Cary Grant, as well as the emotionally complex man filled with self-doubt, despite his iconic status as one of the most beloved stars ever.
