Product Description

Bringing Up Baby - Eccentric heiress Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn) steals a dinosaur bone from absent-minded paleontologist David Huxley (Cary Grant), forcing him to track her down to her Connecticut farm. Along the way he runs into trouble with the authorities and a possible sponsor for his museum, and ends up looking after Susan's pet leopard, 'Baby'.

That Touch of Mink - Two of Hollywood’s most beloved stars, Cary Grant and Doris Day, sparkle in a breezy, stylish comedy that’s rich with romantic delights. Love arrives with a splash when a handsome and eligible tycoon (Grant) and a beautiful working woman (Day) meet over a curbside mud puddle. He’s enchanted by her small town ways; she’s captivated by his romantic, debonair manner. But when it comes to marriage, they have decidedly different views – she wants it and he doesn’t! What ensues is a game of cat-and-mouse as each tries to win.

Charade - Reggie Lambert (Audrey Hepburn) is about to divorce her husband when she finds that he has been murdered after converting every penny they owned to cash, which is also missing. She then starts to be pursued by several men, including a handsome stranger, Peter Joshua (Grant), who want the fortune her murdered husband stole during World War 2. Naturally, everyone thinks that Reggie knows the whereabouts of the money. As the corpses begin to accumulate, it becomes increasingly important – and difficult for Reggie to determine who are the good guys and who are the villains. Who can she trust?
Dubbed languages: French, Italian, German, Spanish.

I'm No Angel - Mae West plays Tira in this fascinating comedy romance. Come on this entertaining journey with Tira who works as the divine dancing beauty and lion tamer at a fair. Needing some money to pay to defend herself in a court case, Tira agrees to take part in a show where she has to put her head in the mouth of a lion as the big climax of a stunt. Tira’s new act is a tremendous success and offers come to perform in the Big Show. She continues flirting with rich men. Is her future meant to be chasing an endless string of lavish men or is Tira's fate sealed with tall, dark and handsome Jack Clayton played by Cary Grant? A fortune-teller has all the answers as Tira becomes a victim of intrigue and this means much more romatic madness from the entire cast of this angel-less flick.

Synopsis

A box set containing four of Cary Grant's best-loved films. Contains:
In Bringing Up Baby (1938) Grant plays Dr. David Huxley, a paleontologist who is serious about his work. Whilst waiting for a the bone he needs to complete his brontosaurus skeleton, David also has to have a meeting with a very wealthy potential donor. On top of this, he is also putting the finishing touches to his upcoming marriage. The last thing he needs is the arrival of Susan (Katherine Hepburn), a strong-willed and beautiful woman who seems to cause trouble wherever she goes.

My Favourite Wife (1940) is the story of how a woman, believed to have been dead for the past seven years (when in fact she has been marooned on an island) returns to her husband on the day of his marriage to another woman.
In Indiscreet (1958) Grant stars as a wealthy American diplomat, Philip, who is happy with his bachelor life and has no plans to change it. When he meets a beautiful actress, Anne (played by Ingrid Bergman), he pretends to be married to keep her at a distance. However Anne cannot resist Philip and he slowly falls in love with her. How can Philip solve the problem he has made for himself? --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

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.

Format: DVD
This collection of Cary Grant films includes "Bringing up a baby",
"My Favourite Wife" , "Indiscreet" and "Opperation Petticoat".
The quality of DVD image is quite nice including the older films.
The artistic decoration of the set is superb - it is relatively slim box (twice as wide as regular DVD box).
After you pull it from the case it unwraps in four pages in diffrerent directions (like a flower), each of them contains DVD on it.
And each page has gorgeus photos of Cary Grant and one of his costars - Katharine Hepburn, Irene Dunne, Ingrid Bergman.
The set also includes 4 art cards - on the front side there is a
reprint of an original poster of the film and on another the list of the Chapters of the DVD.
The special features include "Production notes" and "Cast and crew".
This beatiful box set is a dream of every Cary Grant fan and every classic films lover.

Format: DVD
On 18 DVDs there are 21 movies. Of course not all of them are of equal quality, his later movies are admittedly much better than the earlier ones. My personal favorite ones among the films present in the collection: Operation Petticoat (super funny), Charade, That touch of Mink, The grass is greener, Father Goose, An affair to remember. Sadly To catch the thief is not in it.

This is a beautifully packaged product featuring many of Cary Grant's greatest films and much of his early work. Presentation is superb making this truly a collector's item. The films themselves are of good quality though extras would have been nice. Recommended and at the price I paid at the time - good value.

A lot of movies for the money,but sadly the usual Universal no expense incurred presentation. No digital restoration here and the two 'Scope movies are a disgrace. "The Grass is Greener" looks like it was mastered from VHS in non anamorphic letterbox, while "That Touch of Mink" is a ghastly pan and scan job in spite of the sleeve claiming it's 2.35:1.

I know it would be impossible to include all of his films but it seems to me that there are a few missing that you'd expect to be here. Three of my favourite Cary Grant films are missing; His Girl Friday, The Awful Truth and I was a Male War Bride. It's a shame (and why I can't give this lovely box set five stars) and surprising. Other than that, this is a well put together set and is a perfect present for not just Cary Grant fans, but fans of 1930s/40s cinema and Classic Hollywood Cinema.
