A collection of Cary Grant films. In 'Bringing Up Baby' (1938) eccentric heiress Susan Vance (Katharine Hepburn) steals a dinosaur bone from absent-minded paleontologist David Huxley (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'. In 'My Favourite Wife' (1940) Nick Arden (Grant) has his wife Ellen (Irene Dunne) declared legally dead after she has been missing for seven years, in order to marry his new love, Bianca (Gail Patrick). When Ellen, who has been shipwrecked all this time, returns to find her erstwhile husband has remarried, she sets out to get him back by making him jealous over Stephen (Randolph Scott), the man with whom she was shipwrecked. In 'Indiscreet' (1958) Anna Kalman (Ingrid Bergman) is a wealthy actress whose love affairs never last for long. When she meets businessman Philip Adams (Grant) at a NATO dinner, she is attracted to him. He reveals that he is married, but this does not prevent them embarking on a love affair. However, just as Philip prepares to depart for a job in New York, Anna discovers that he has been less than honest with her. Finally, in 'Operation Petticoat' (1959) Matt Sherman (Grant) is skipper of the U.S.S. Sea Tiger, a submarine forced out to sea by an enemy air attack. He is less than impressed by his newly-arrived junior officer, Lieutenant Nick Holden (Tony Curtis), who nevertheless manages to scavenge the spare parts and supplies needed to keep the sub in action. Matters are complicated when five stranded army nurses are taken on board, and assist with the renovation. Through a series of mishaps, Sherman's command ends up being painted a conspicuous shade of pink!
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?

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.
