So, what exactly do I mean with "A good buy for those who want an introduction to Cary Grant"?
Well, there IS a lot of movies for a very low price here so newcomers can get far into the material for relatively little money, but it's also a very good buy if you already have a number of Cary Grant movies in your collection, since many of the movies here are not available elsewhere.
So it's a perfect opportunity to fill out the gaps in your collection.
However, it should be noted that many of the movies in this boxset are "the old ones" and they're not all equally good movies. This is just my opinion of course, but there IS a reason that many of the classics are classics and a lot of other titles are not. I'm sure you know what I mean.
That being said, there ARE several "established" classics here, so it's not just the "bottom of the barrel" you're buying if you buy this collection. So in this boxset you get fantastic movies like 'Bringing up Baby', 'Charade', 'Gunga Din', 'Operation Pettycoat' & 'Suspicion' (which I, btw, feel is overrated).
For me the attraction was the movies I didn't already have, and before buying this my collection counted 39 DVDs with Cary Grant. I already had 12 of the movies presented here, so I actually bought this boxset for the remaining 9 movies I didn't already have...and most of those were some of the "lesser" titles, but what's a fan to do, right? ;-) Still, even though I already had more than half the movies here I don't feel I've wasted my money.
So, there's something here for everyone.
...plus, the packaging is beautiful!
However, please note that the description on Amazon states this box contains 21 discs. It doesn't. It contains 21 movies on 18 discs.
