Produktbeschreibung
To millions, Cary Grant epitomizes the glamour and style of Hollywood in its golden years. Handsome, debonair, yet never seeming to take himself too seriously, he was pursued onscreen by some of the most beautiful women in the history of the movies. In this superbly illustrated biography, Wansell's illuminating text, illustrated with 150 photos, traces the threads of both light and dark in this Hollywood immortal.
His signature jaw line and charismatic characters made him an American symbol. His films, including Bringing Up Baby, The Philadelphia Story, and North by Northwest, were timeless classics. However, Grant was also married five times and sustained a tortured, obsessive relationship with money. In this beautifully illustrated and comprehensive book, Geoffrey Wansell traces the threads of both light and darkness in one of Holly-wood's greatest stars. As his friend and co-star Deborah Kerr wrote, he was "one of the most outstanding personalities in the history of the cinema.”
