His suave on screen personna was utterly unique. No male star since has been able to match it.

thejcaulfieldJul 23, 2014

Not only beautiful, but extraordinarily gifted.

Paris098Nov 11, 2013

Cary is so handsome, I will love him forever

A.C. RobinsonAug 7, 2012

Someone needs to inform the author that Cary didn't even come to the US for the first time until 1920 at age 16, and there are Ellis Island records to prove it. That would also mean he was just 14 and living as a poor unknown in Bristol, England when he first started dating movie stars! Do even just a smidgen of research guys!

Are we to believe that while being married to the British Barbara Harris he was simultaneously dating the American Barbara Harris (the actress)?

billst29Jun 8, 2011

what a gentlemen. the world needs men like grant and me

siouxJun 2, 2010

The joke in my house is.... If Cary knocked on your door what would you do? I said. Grab my toothbrush and tell you all its been nice knowing you all.

"Little Kojak"May 26, 2010

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Cary in the Beverly-Wilshire Hotel in 1975. I asked if he had ever said Judy Judy Judy to which he replied, For the millionth time, NO!!! and walked away.

Cary was not Roman Catholic, but he most certainly was a Capricorn. A fan who should know.

sevgiDec 21, 2009

cary grant was the most beautiful man

StellaStarMar 28, 2009

A true gentleman and a fine actor on screen, but off screen his life was a tad bit more tricky... Anyway, the Barbara Harris he married IS NOT the actress Barbara Harris from freaky friday, corrent that!
