I think my actual favorite of his films has become Death Proof. I find myself watching it a lot and I've taught it in classes quite a few times. The only film of his I haven't taught, actually, is Inglorious Basterds, which I plan to teach next semester. In fact, this is the first semester other than my days of teaching freshman comp that I haven't taught a Tarantino film. By and large, students love his work, but I often wonder if they love it because they think they are supposed to love it?

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 (I'm including only the top 30):
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!!1.(8.60) - North by Northwest (1959)
2.(8.20) - Notorious (1946)

It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.
Watch Charade! Audrey Hepburn + Cary Grant = Serious Eye Candy.
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.

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.)
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.
TCM showing James Dean's movies tomorrow evening.
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!
oh my gosh, i forgot that movie existed! it is a tear jerker
I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
