Cannon describes her life with urbane and suave acting legend Cary Grant—from their romantic courtship to their loving marriage and the birth of their daughter. Ultimately, their shared life became bizarre and most unfortunate, if not tragic. Cannon projects a wistful and sometimes-distant tone in her narration, which works for the more romantic moments but not for the dramatic moments—which include descriptions of wild mood swings and experiments, at Grant’s insistence, with LSD for the purpose of achieving enlightenment and a stronger marriage. Cannon, an accomplished actress in her own right, presents the story in a monotone and, with the exception of a few instances of controlling tears, seems emotionless in the face of highly dramatic material. Her narration does not propel the listener through the story nor does it sufficiently elevate the pedestrian text. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2011]
