Publisher Comments:

One of Hollywood's best-loved stars, the debonair actor of more than 70 films embodies masculine chic—here is his Life in Pictures
 
Archie Leach, born in England into poverty, transformed himself into Cary Grant and became rich and famous in America, an international star, and an icon of gentlemanly style. This book provides a pictorial account of his fascinating life story. A partial inspiration for James Bond's mixture of chic, virility, and sex appeal, and celebrated by colleagues for his sense of humor, Cary Grant was also an accomplished actor, nominated twice for an Oscar and five times for a Golden Globe. With his suave, debonair personality, he conquered Hollywood and became an intimate friend of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Sophia Loren, all of whom he appears with here in photos. He is also shown with Ingrid Bergman, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Alfred Hitchcock, Robert Mitchum, Doris Day, and Marilyn Monroe in this sumptuous collection of images telling his cinematic life story.
