Sounds like everyone here liked Arsenic and Old Lace better than me... Which made me think I should see more Cary Grant movies as I don't think I've seen many. Which made me find this list from imdb.com ranking his movies by popularity (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000026/filmorate) (I'm including only the top 30):



1.(8.60) - North by Northwest (1959)
2.(8.20) - Notorious (1946)
3.(8.10) - His Girl Friday (1940)
4.(8.10) - Bringing Up Baby (1938)
5.(8.10) - The Philadelphia Story (1940)
6.(8.10) - Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
7.(8.00) - Charade (1963)
8.(7.99) - The Awful Truth (1937)
9.(7.79) - Holiday (1938)
10.(7.69) - Only Angels Have Wings (1939)
11.(7.68) - The Talk of the Town (1942)
12.(7.59) - Gunga Din (1939)
13.(7.50) - To Catch a Thief (1955)
14.(7.50) - Suspicion (1941)
15.(7.49) - The Bishop's Wife (1947)
16.(7.39) - Topper (1937)
17.(7.30) - An Affair to Remember (1957)
18.(7.29) - People Will Talk (1951)
19.(7.29) - My Favorite Wife (1940)
20.(7.29) - Father Goose (1964)
21.(7.28) - Blonde Venus (1932)
22.(7.20) - Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948)
23.(7.20) - Operation Petticoat (1959)
24.(7.18) - Mr. Lucky (1943)
25.(7.10) - Monkey Business (1952)
26.(7.09) - Penny Serenade (1941)
27.(7.09) - Destination Tokyo (1943)
28.(7.09) - The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947)
29.(7.00) - I Was a Male War Bride (1949)
30.(6.99) - I'm No Angel (1933)

I've seen North By Northwest, An Affair To Remember and I'm No Angel, but I remember them more for the movie overall, rather than Cary Grant specifically. And I saw Gunga Din a few years back and did not care for it. Still, I have a lot of catching up to do!! :eek:

Watch Charade! Audrey Hepburn + Cary Grant = Serious Eye Candy.

Bringing up Baby and The Philadelphia Story are both brilliant! He's fantastic in both.

We took the niece and nephew to see Lion King. I wish they had some non 3D showings because the 2 yr old wouldn't wear her glasses. Could have saved a lot of money with a regular showing.

I still need to go see Straw Dogs and now I want to see Drive.

I've seen most of those and loved every one, lol! The only Grant movie I haven't really liked was "Only Angels Have Wings", but I still enjoy the parts with him in it :swoon:

I adore those movies, and His Girl Friday.

One of my favorites (top 10) didn't even make the list--I liked "Room For One More" with Betsy Drake and this funny little boy with raspy voice (don't know his name.)

"Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House" is absolutely :rofl: and actually holds up very well for a 60+ year old film!

Cary and Myrna Loy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZwOGVWqHAw) were a great pair. :)

I love them, too, but love her even better with William Powell. Love Cary Grant and Irene Dunne together.

Add me to the Cary Grant fan club. Arsenic & Old Lace is still one of my favourite comedies of all time, but I also love The Philadelphia Story, North by Northwest, Notorious, and To Cath a Thief.

I a completely different vein, I watched A Summer in Genoa over the weekend. Pretty much the only reason I picked it up was for Colin Firth (really, do you need any other reason?), but I enjoyed it for so man other reasons too. It never ceases to amaze me how many different ways there are to portray grief and how it affects one's behaviour.

I liked Cary in Penny Serenade - it was so unlike his screen persona, and it was a great tearjerker of a movie. He and Irene Dunne played off each other so well.

Rex, you and I are "on the same wavelength".

I came here to post about "Penny Serenade"; such an underrated, moving film.
Grant and Dunne are wonderful; and Beulah Bondi, as well.
Keep tissues handy!
