In an era when glamour was prevalent, Cary Grant became one of Hollywood's iconic leading men, starring in over 70 films, including the Hitchcock films, "North by Northwest", "Suspicion", "Notorious" and "To Catch a Thief". Yet Cary Grant started off life as Archie Leach in the distinctly unglamorous milieu of provincial, post-Victorian Bristol. The authors of this biography explore how he overcame the difficulties of his dysfunctional and unprivileged background and built his career. A reporter once asked Grant, "Who is Cary Grant"? His telling response was, "When you find out, tell me". This volume provides an objective critique of the real, fallible man behind the projected screen image. Grant's private life was kept strictly secret at the time, when there was rigid studio control of stars and much less press intrusion than in contemporary times. Here, the authors uncover what happened off the film sets.
