I want it to move fast. I really enjoyed HERO found and Sandra Lees Bio. I like fact and history. Don't like Some sing some cry, too slangy

  • Cary Grant: A Class Apart

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Graham McCann
    • Narrated By Grover Gardner

    Story
    (13)

    For two moviegoing generations, Cary Grant was class—an effortless embodiment of gentlemanly grace and humor. But Cary Grant’s greatest achievement was in creating himself and the irresistible character he became. In this savvy, fascinating portrait, McCann tracks the transformation of a life and looks closely at the sources of Cary Grant’s charms, which did not come easily. Generously filled with anecdotes about fellow actors and directors, a realistic portrait of a complicated man emerges.

    Janie says: "Cary Grant, the elusive man"
