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

Not only beautiful, but extraordinarily gifted.

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!

notnefnotnefMay 30, 2012

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

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.
