Cary Grant : [a class apart] by Graham McCann( Recording )

2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For two movie-going generations, Cary Grant was class--an effortless embodiment of gentlemanly grace and humor. But Cary Grant's greatest achievement was in creating himself, and the irresistible character he became. In this portrait, McCann tracks the transformation of a life and looks closely at the sources of Cary Grant's charms, which did not come easily. Generously filled with anecdotes about fellow actors and directors, a realistic portrait of a complicated man emerges. And although Grant was criticized for remaining in Hollywood during World War II, it now seems that he may have worked as a special agent for British Intelligence: in 1947, Grant received the King's Medal for Service in the Cause for Freedom, an award that was not made public at the time. This biography yields a new appreciation of Cary Grant's work and his persona, one that was at once familiar, yet always enigmatic, even to those who knew him best
W.C. Fields : his follies and fortune by Robert Lewis Taylor( Recording )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From infancy, Fields found life laborious sledding, and he took extraordinary measures to triumph over all. Nobody in our recent history absorbed such a buffeting as a child and emerged so relentlessly successful in after life. By the time of his death, on Christmas Day in 1946, he was widely acknowledged to have become the greatest comic artist ever known. Robert Lewis Taylor's biography captures the perverse and cantankerous wit and charm of the Great Man, his films, and the exceptional life he led, all from his uniquely jaundiced perspective
