9781862059245: Cary Grant: A Life in Pictures

One of Hollywood's best-loved stars, the debonair actor of more than 70 films embodies masculine chic—here is his Life in Pictures Archie Leach, born in England into poverty, transformed himself into Cary Grant and became rich and famous in America, an international star, and an icon of gentlemanly style. This book provides a pictorial account of his fascinating life story. A partial inspiration for James Bond's mixture of chic, virility, and sex appeal, and celebrated by colleagues for his sense of humor, Cary Grant was also an accomplished actor, nominated twice for an Oscar and five times for a Golden Globe. With his suave, debonair personality, he conquered Hollywood and became an intimate friend of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Sophia Loren, all of whom he appears with here in photos. He is also shown with Ingrid Bergman, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Alfred Hitchcock, Robert Mitchum, Doris Day, and Marilyn Monroe in this sumptuous collection of images telling his cinematic life story.

Review:

"[The book] allows us access to the finest photographs of Mr. Grant; a collection of which reveals the essence of his talent and character."  –Flaunt.com

 "Handsome; Cary Grant was both a troubled man and a manufactured myth and, for the most part, Cary Grant: A Life in Pictures does an effective job of telling both stories."  —CinemaSentries.com

Book Description PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cary Grant enjoys a special status in Hollywood; he embodies masculine chic. He was the inspiration for Ian Fleming s famous British spy, James Bond: a mixture of chic, virility and sex appeal. Interestingly, in 1962, Cary Grant actually turned down the role of agent 007, James Bond, in the film Dr No. However, far from being just a dandy with a sense of humour, Cary Grant was an accomplished actor, nominated twice for an Oscar and five times for a Golden Globe, as well as Alfred Hitchcock s favourite actor. This book provides a pictorial account of his fascinating life story. It s the story of Archie Leach, born in England into poverty, and who transformed himself into Cary Grant and became rich and famous in America. With his suave, debonair personality, he conquered Hollywood and became an intimate friend of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Sofia Loren. He was a leading man for over 30 years and ended his days as an influential actor and businessman, with all the trappings of success - a magnificent manor house, a private jet and the sumptuous leather of a Rolls-Royce, with a `CG1 licence plate.
