It's Cary Grant's Birthday

"The Legend and the Ladies."

What a classic.

What style.

What a great rags-to-riches story.

(What an ancient magazine cover.)

I can kind of see why people compare George Clooney to Grant.

Have you ever noticed that certain actors always look older than you, even when they were younger than you? I don't mean they look OLD, just that they're so polished and grown-up looking that they look eons beyond little immature you at the same age (and everyone else you know at that age). Cary Grant was one of those people. G and I were watching him in a Hitchcock movie the other night and commenting that he must have been in his mid-30s when he made the movie, which would make him younger than we are now, yet he looked so spit-shined and MANLY. I wish 20- and 30-somethings would dress like they did back in the mid-1900s, and not try to look like adolescents, as they do now.

Okay, I was wrong. It was Notorious and he was 42. Still, I stand by my point...

I absolutely love Cary Grant - especially his really early b&w films. In NY we had channal 9 million dollar movie and the late show and I grew up on all those oldies. Bringing Up Baby, Philadelphia Story - they don't even show them on TV anymore. Thank goodness for DVDs.

Oh, I'm in a minority of one here, I expect. I've never liked Cary Grant. Was that 'acting' he was supposed to be doing in all those silly films? LOL! Only like Tony Curtis imitating him in Some Like It Hot.

Cary Grant.... I can't help but like him. I'm not sure why.

I like him in the old films with Katharine Hepburn (who is, as you know, more my type).
