Résumé :

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 savvy, fascinating portrait, Graham McCann tracks the transformation of a life and looks closely at the sources of Cary Grant's charms. They did not come easily: born Archie Leach to a poor working-class family in Bristol, England, Grant reveled in ambiguities and surprises. Trained early in the arts of vaudeville, he was a supremely physical leading man; in memorable films, he was the American hero with the ripe British accent or the intimate stranger who was often the seduced male; in life, he was a celebrated entertainer who also became a wealthy businessman.
