Cary Grant's role as one of the most elegant leading men of Hollywood is worthy of this detailed study by biographer and narrator Marc Eliot. This work is a wonderful panorama of the glamour years of Hollywood. Eliot obviously cares for his subject, but he reads with journalistic energy rather than the ardor of a fan. He sometimes takes the journalistic tone to an extreme--he reels off all the players in each film he discusses, which can get monotonous. However, the roller-coaster life and lifestyle of the British-born American movie star will completely hold your attention and will likely kick off a Cary Grant film festival in your home.
