In addition to having its lack of gossip as a recommendation, A Celebration is really a clear, interesting analysis of Cary Grant's career. It goes through each movie he made, reviews it, and presents a comprehensive theory on Grant's work and the times and man that led to its creation. The reviews, which are blended in to the narrative, are very useful for fans who want to know which movies are worth watching besides the obvious choices.
So, anyhow, this book has a simple but truthful biography of a real Hollywood legend, whose talent and originality on screen was only matched by his reticence and desire for privacy off of it. It is also a useful reference. For all of Cary Grant's fans and anyone interested in classic cinema in general, this is highly recommended. If you aren't interested in any of the above things, why are you looking here anyhow?
If that's what you're looking for, then go elsewhere e.g. Cary Grant - A Class Apart. This however is fantastic for anyone who seriously wants to understand why Cary Grant was able to sustain himself at the top of the box office for so long, and why he was regarded as one of the greatest film actors ever, including by Hitchcock, Howard Hawks and Marlon Brando.
