Cary Grant was a Class Apart!
25 April 2019 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

He was born Archie Leach and became Cary Grant, movie star worldwide. Women wanted to be with him and men wanted to be him. Even Cary Grant wanted to be Cary Grant, he was born Archie Leach in Bristol, England. The documentary is appropriate for American Masters because Cary Grant was an original class act. He became a legendary movie star. Audiences will see rare personal archive footage with wives, friends and co-stars. He could do comedy and drama just as easily. Everybody loved Cary Grant but they also loved Archie Leach. This documentary was shown on Bringing Up Baby DVD collector's item. It's worth watching if you love the old movie stars.
