Comments From Fans About Cary Grant
Written by Diana Saenger   

In our contest to win An Affair To Remember we ask classic movie fans for comments about "one of the most popular actors."

Here are their responses.

I enjoy all of Cary Grant's movies, but especially the war pictures he made. One of my all time favorites would be Operation Petticoat co-starring Tony Curtis. There are so many entertaining scenes in that movie, but one that causes me to laugh the loudest would be toward the end of the movie when Joan O'Brien's character (which is incidentally extremely accident prone during the entire movie) drives her vehicle into her husband's staff car (character played by Cary Grant) and the staff car hooks bumpers with a military bus that is pulling away from the dock. She exits her car and is worried about her accident and Cary Grant says, "Don't worry Dear; they'll stop it at the gate."  

My other all time favorites would be two movies he made with Myrna Loy. Mr. Blanding's Builds his Dream House and The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer. They are both extremely entertaining. The dialogue from The Bachelor... about  I know a man with the power  is enjoyable. The best scene in Mr. Blandings has to be when Myrna Loy is directing the painters on what colors to paint their new home. I think she should have won an Oscar for that movie. COMMENTS FROM PAM IN NEVADA.

Cary in North By Northwest comes to mind always first for some reason, the crop dust scene. It is my favorite Hitchcock film. Cary was fantastic in the scene and it was a powerful scene. COMMENTS FROM JODY IN OHIO.

I cannot think of Cary Grant without recalling the first time I saw His Girl Friday. Never has a movie made me laugh so hard! I would rewind just to catch the bits I missed while laughing! To me that's the best thing about Cary Grant. He could have been just another pretty face, but he was one of the best comedic actors of his generation (and probably several other generations, too)! COMMENTS FROM MARY IN TEXAS.

I've loved Father Goose since I was a kid. Cary Grant is absolutely perfect in it Leonard Maltin had the gall to claim Grant was miscast, apparently operating under the theory that any time an actor isn't being TYPEcast, he's being MIScast! Cary himself said it was the one role that was the most like his true self. COMMENTS FROM RICHARD IN COLORADO.

My favorite Cary Grant movie is Suspicion. (I love the Alfred Hitchcock movies) As many times as I've seen this one, I still don't know if Johnny was a bad guy or not. COMMENTS FROM LINDA IN TEXAS.

Cary Grant was the consummate male actor of his genre and generation. His ability to adapt to all types of roles and to develop the characters has never been surpassed in my opinion. We    need many, many more Cary Grants. COMMENTS FROM PEGGY IN NEVADA.

I love Cary Grant...he was amazingly handsome and sophisticated...he never appears to be acting....it seems to be so natural. My favorite Cary Grant movie is An Affair to Remember...but North by Northwest is also really great and fun to watch.  COMMENTS FROM JANE IN FROM MINNESOTA.

I adore Cary Grant. He's my favorite actor...ever! A number of his movies are in my all-time Top 20 - Notorious, The Awful Truth, Arsenic & Old Lace. COMMENTS FROM GERALDINE IN FLORIDA.

Impossible to say in a few words what Cary Grant evokes in me each time his name is spoken, or I see  his  handsome image  on the television. Cray Grant for  me is pure charm and charisma.  He is very handsome, there is no denying it but truly his charm is where his attractiveness is at, his ability to leave you totally spell-bound in scene after scene. Cary's wit I think can be un-matched. He was just an amazingly brilliant actor who could totally captivate with his wit, humor, intelligence. Grant has left an indelible mark on the world and will forever live on through film and memory. His presence forever reminds us of the treasure that he was. We've been truly the blessed ones to have had the privilege to watch him. An Affair  To Remember captured my heart. Grant is perfect charm and wit and along with Deborah Kerr,  you feel the heartbreak of their love. It's a truly beautiful movie and one of my top favorites, although  I find it impossible to have a favorite because all of his are my favorites. COMMENTS FROM ELIZABETH IN MICHIGAN.

Cary Grant was a man who needed no introduction. He was charming, charismatic and suave. The moment between him and Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief in which they kiss during the fireworks was nothing short of brilliant. I will always love the moments between him and Eva Marie Saint in North By Northwest, Katherine Hepburn in Bringing Up Baby  and The Philadelphia Story, and Ingrid Bergman in Notorious and Indiscreet. Easily, he is still the king of classic film romance. COMMENTS FROM DAVID IN NORTH CAROLINA.

Everytime I watch Cary Grant act I have to remind myself that he is indeed acting. COMMENT FROM KEITH IN KENTUCKY

My favorite Cary Grant movie of all time is An Affair to Remember. I discovered it on TV late one night when I was a teenager in the 1970s.  COMMENT FROM CINDY IN NEW JERSEY.

At once suave and hilarious, Cary Grant is one of my favorite actors. He's done at least a dozen films that I dearly love, including Arsenic and Old Lace, Father Goose, Operation Petticoat, and Gunga Din. I only wish he'd been around to play James Bond. COMMENT FROM AURIETTE IN FLORIDA

Cary Grant was wonderful in all of his roles but my favorites were the ones that used
his wonderful sense of comedy. A Touch of Mink, Bringing Up Baby, Topper and Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House are my all time favorites. COMMENT FROM SHARON IN WISCONSIN

I loved all of his movies but I guess my favorite is Father Goose. COMMENT FROM ROBERT IN ARIZONA

My favorite  Cary Grant movie is North by Northwest. COMMENT FROM DAVID IN KENTUCKY

My grandma loved Cary Grant.  When I was a little girl, we'd watch a lot of his movies together. There are so many fun ones to choose from...especially Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House and Arsenic & Old Lace. COMMENT FROM ANGIE IN ILLINOIS

Cary Grant could play both dramatic and comedy roles well. I especially remember Houseboat with Sophia Loren as one of my favorites. COMMENT FROM BETTY IN NEBRASKA
