Dear Cary LP: A Memoir (Large Print)by Dyan Cannon
Synopses & Reviews
Cary Grant was the ultimate star, defining Hollywood glamour as well as cinematic achievement. Dyan Cannon was a bright new actress, beautiful and funny. So began a storybook romance that brought her to dizzying heights and the inner circles of power in which Cary Grant was king.
Behind closed doors, she discovered a Cary no one knew. A caring and private person, with dark family secrets that weighed heavily upon him. He was a man contending with the swan song of an astonishing film career while her career was just beginning. Despite the age difference, they fell in love, got married, and had a beautiful daughter together. Happily Ever After, though, proved elusive, and their relationship was beset with tragic twists and turns.
With rare photos and never-before-seen letters from Grant, Dear Cary is told with poignancy and hard-won wisdom.
Withhonesty and heart-rending emotion, actress and filmmaker DyanCannon tells the story of her topsy-turvy relationship with Hollywood legendCary Grant. Cannons captivating narrative takes the reader behind the scenesof Hollywoods Golden Age, inside Americas high court of glamour and notorietyin which Cary Grant was king. In his private life alongside Cannon, however, astory that began with all the romance of his famous films—Charade, ToCatch a Thief, An Affair to Remember or The Philadelphia Story—wouldend up taking a series of tragic and unpredictable twists and turns. Insharing Grants inside story for the first time, Dear Cary is exactlywhat Hollywood is always looking for . . . the next blockbuster, and a storyfor romance lovers of all ages.
