As a film critic who has spent the last two decades interviewing movie stars and directors for a PBS stations in Philadelphia, I've often been asked which star I most regret NOT interviewing. That is "Cary Grant". Perhaps the best thing I can say about this detailed, well-written, and insightful book is that I feel I've gotten to know the man who became the man we all wanted to be by listening to this fascinating tale. Some people would prefer that this charming, talented man be the perfect person offscreen as he was onscreen and at public appearances. I prefer to respect the accomplishment of "becoming Cary Grant" that the real person managed through much effort and agony. This recording is over 15 hours long, and I devoured it in 5 and 6 hour stretches within a couple of days of beginning it.
