Description

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. And although Grant was criticized for remaining in Hollywood during World War II, it now seems that he may have worked as a special agent for British Intelligence: in 1947, Grant was awarded the King's Medal for Service in the Cause for Freedom, an honor that was not made public at the time.
