Cary Grant (born Archibald Alexander Leach; January 18, 1904 – November 29, 1986) was an English-born American film and stage actor.

Known for his transatlantic accent, debonair demeanor and "dashing good looks", Grant is considered one of classic Hollywood's definitive leading men.<ref>McMann 1996, p. 271, n. 13. Note: Although Grant's baptismal record records his middle name as "Alec", it is "Alexander" on his birth certificate. </ref>

Grant was named the second Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute. Noted particularly for his work in comedy but also for drama, Grant's best-known films include The Awful Truth (1937), Bringing Up Baby (1938), Gunga Din (1939), The Philadelphia Story (1940), His Girl Friday (1940), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), Notorious (1946), To Catch A Thief (1955), An Affair to Remember (1957), North by Northwest (1959) and Charade (1963).

Nominated twice for the Academy Award for Best Actor, for Penny Serenade (1941) and None But the Lonely Heart (1944), and five times for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor, Grant was continually passed over, and in 1970 was given an Honorary Oscar at the 42nd Academy Awards. Frank Sinatra presented Grant with the award, "for his unique mastery of the art of screen acting with the respect and affection of his colleagues".<ref>"Oscar."

Early life and career

Archibald Alexander Leach was born at 15 Hughenden Road, Horfield, Bristol, to Elsie Maria Kingdon (1877–1973) and Elias James Leach (1873–1935).<ref>"Elsie Kingdom."

Retrieved July 12, 2008.</ref> An only child, Leach had an unhappy upbringing, attending Bishop Road Primary School. His mother had suffered from clinical depression since the death of a previous child. Her husband placed her in a mental institution, and told his nine-year-old son only that she had gone away on a "long holiday". Believing she was dead, Grant did not learn otherwise until he was 31 and discovered her alive in a care facility.Template:R When Grant was 10, his father abandoned him after remarrying and having a baby with his new young wife.<ref>"Cary Grant's LSD Gateway to God." World Entertainment News Network (via The Sydney Morning Herald), October 18, 2011. Retrieved: October 14, 2012.</ref>

Grant was expelled from the Fairfield Grammar School in Bristol in 1918. After joining the "Bob Pender Stage Troupe", Leach performed as a stilt walker and traveled with the group to the United States in 1920 at the age of 16, on a two-year tour of the country. He was processed at Ellis Island on 28 July 1920. <ref>"The Statue of Liberty." Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. Retrieved: March 24, 2010.</ref>

When the troupe returned to the UK, he decided to stay in the U.S. and continue his stage career. Grant later became a naturalized United States citizen during World War II, on June 26, 1942, at which time he also legally changed his name from "Archibald Alexander Leach" to "Cary Grant". <ref></ref> During this time, he became a part of the vaudeville world and toured with Parker, Rand and Leach. Still using his birth name, he performed on the stage at The Muny in St. Louis, Missouri, in such shows as Irene (1931), Music in May (1931), Nina Rosa (1931), Rio Rita (1931), Street Singer (1931), The Three Musketeers (1931) and Wonderful Night (1931). Leach's experience on stage as a stilt walker, acrobat, juggler and mime taught him "phenomenal physical grace and exquisite comic timing" and the value of teamwork, skills which would benefit him in Hollywood.Template:R

Hollywood stardom

After appearing in several musicals on Broadway under the name Archie Leach,<ref>"Cary Grant." Internet Broadway Database. Retrieved: September 8, 2011.</ref> Grant went to Hollywood in 1931.Template:R When told to change his name, he proposed "Cary Lockwood," the name of the character he had played in the Broadway show Nikki, based upon the recent film The Last Flight. He signed with Paramount Pictures, where studio bosses decided that the name "Cary" was acceptable, but that "Lockwood" was too similar to another actor's surname. Paramount gave their new actor a list of surnames to choose from, and he selected "Grant" because the initials C and G had already proved lucky for Clark Gable and Gary Cooper, two of Hollywood's biggest film stars.

Grant appeared as a leading man opposite Marlene Dietrich in Blonde Venus (1932), and his stardom was given a further boost by Mae West when she chose him for her leading man in two of her most successful films, She Done Him Wrong and I'm No Angel (both 1933).<ref>"Cary Grant biography." Encyclopedia Britannica.</ref> I'm No Angel was a tremendous financial success and, along with She Done Him Wrong, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, saved Paramount from bankruptcy. Paramount put Grant in a series of unsuccessful films until 1936, when he signed with Columbia Pictures. His first major comedy hit was when he was loaned to Hal Roach's studio for the 1937 Topper (which was distributed by MGM).

The Awful Truth (1937) was a pivotal film in Grant's career, establishing for him a screen persona as a sophisticated light comedy leading man. As Grant later wrote, "I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me. Or we met at some point." Grant is said to have based his characterization in The Awful Truth on the mannerisms and intonations of the film's director, Leo McCarey, whom he resembled physically. As writer/director Peter Bogdanovich noted, "After The Awful Truth, when it came to light comedy, there was Cary Grant and then everyone else was an also-ran."

The Awful Truth began what The Atlantic later called "what would be the most spectacular run ever for an actor in American pictures."Template:R During the next four years, Grant appeared in several classic romantic comedies and screwball comedies, including Holiday (1938), Bringing Up Baby (1938) and The Philadelphia Story (1940) (all three films opposite Katharine Hepburn) His Girl Friday (1940) with Rosalind Russell; and My Favorite Wife (1940), which reunited him with Irene Dunne, his co-star in The Awful Truth. During this time he also made the adventure films Gunga Din and Only Angels Have Wings (both 1939) and dramas Penny Serenade (1941, also with Dunne) and Suspicion (1941, the first of Grant's four collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock).

Grant remained one of Hollywood's top box-office attractions for almost 30 years.Template:R Howard Hawks said that Grant was "so far the best that there isn't anybody to be compared to him".<ref>Mast, Howard and Gerald. "Interview of Howard Hawks with Joseph McBride, in Hawks, Bringing Up Baby."

In Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest

Grant was a favorite of Hitchcock, who called him "the only actor I ever loved in my whole life".<ref name=NelsonN-GrantC>Nelson and Grant 1992, p. 325.</ref> Besides Suspicion, Grant appeared in the Hitchcock classics Notorious (1946), To Catch a Thief (1955) and North by Northwest (1959). Biographer Patrick McGilligan wrote that, in 1965, Hitchcock asked Grant to star in Torn Curtain (1966), only to learn that Grant had decided to retire after making one more film, Walk, Don't Run (1966); Paul Newman was cast instead, opposite Julie Andrews.<ref name=McGillianP>McGilligan 2003, pp. 663–664.</ref> Producers Broccoli and Saltzman originally sought Cary Grant for the role of James Bond in Dr. No, but discarded the idea as Grant would be committed to only one feature film, and the producers decided to go after someone who could be part of a franchise.

In the mid-1950s, Grant formed his own production company, Granart Productions, and produced a number of films distributed by Universal, such as Operation Petticoat (1959), Indiscreet (1958), That Touch of Mink (co-starring with Doris Day, 1962), and Father Goose (1964). In 1963, he appeared opposite Audrey Hepburn in Charade. His last feature film was Walk, Don't Run three years later, with Samantha Eggar and Jim Hutton.

Grant was the first actor to "go independent" by not renewing his studio contract, effectively leaving the studio system,Template:R which almost completely controlled what an actor could or could not do. In this way, Grant was able to control every aspect of his career, at the risk of not working because no particular studio had an interest in his career long term. He decided which films he was going to appear in, he often had personal choice of the directors and his co-stars and at times even negotiated a share of the gross revenue, something uncommon at the time. Grant received more than $700,000 for his 10% of the gross for To Catch a Thief, while Hitchcock received less than $50,000 for directing and producing it.<ref name="hodgins19570610">Hodgins, Eric. "Amid Ruins of an Empire a New Hollywood Arises." Life (via Google Books), May 10, 1957, p. 146.</ref>

Grant was nominated for two Academy Awards, for Penny Serenade (1941) and None But the Lonely Heart (1944), but never won a competitive Oscar; he received a special Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1970. Accepting the Best Original Screenplay Oscar in 1965, Father Goose co-writer Peter Stone had quipped, "My thanks to Cary Grant, who keeps winning these things for other people." In 1981, Grant was accorded the Kennedy Center Honors.

Grant poked fun at himself with statements such as, "Everyone wants to be Cary Grant—even I want to be Cary Grant,"<ref>"Cary in the Sky with Diamonds." Vanity Fair, Number 600, August 2010, p. 174.</ref> sometimes elaborating, "I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me. Or we met at some point."Template:R He poked fun at himself in ad-lib lines - such as in the film His Girl Friday, saying, "I never had so much fun since Archie Leach died", and in Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) a gravestone is seen bearing the name Archie Leach. According to an extremely famous story now believed to be apocryphal, after seeing a telegram from a magazine editor to his agent asking "How old Cary Grant?" Grant reportedly responded with "Old Cary Grant fine. How you?"<ref>"Old Cary Grant Fine." Time, 27 July 1962.</ref><ref>Halliwell 1988, p. 303.</ref> Template:-

Personal life

Marriages, relationships and sexuality

Grant was married five times. He wed Virginia Cherrill on February 10, 1934. She divorced him on 26 March 1935, following charges that Grant had hit her. In 1942, he married Barbara Hutton, one of the wealthiest women in the world, and became a father figure to her son, Lance Reventlow. The couple was derisively nicknamed "Cash and Cary", although in an extensive prenuptial agreement Grant refused any financial settlement in the event of a divorce. After divorcing in 1945, they remained lifelong friends. Grant always bristled at the accusation that he married for money: "I may not have married for very sound reasons, but money was never one of them."<ref>Hadleigh 2003, p. 238.</ref><ref> Public Record, State of California</ref>

On December 25, 1949, Grant married Betsy Drake. He appeared with her in two films. This would prove to be his longest marriage, ending on August 14, 1962. Drake introduced Grant to LSD, and in the early 1960s he related how treatment with the hallucinogenic drug — legal at the time — at a prestigious California clinic had finally brought him inner peace after yoga, hypnotism and mysticism had proved ineffective.<ref name=WhiteB>"Cary Grant Today."

He eloped with Dyan Cannon on July 22, 1965 in Las Vegas. Their daughter, Jennifer Grant, was born prematurely on February 26, 1966. He frequently called her his "best production" and regretted that he had not had children sooner. The marriage was troubled from the beginning, and Cannon left him in December 1966, claiming that Grant flew into frequent rages and spanked her when she "disobeyed" him. The divorce, finalized in 1968, was bitter and public, and custody fights over their daughter went on for nearly 10 years.

On April 11, 1981, Grant married long-time companion Barbara Harris, a British hotel public-relations agent, who was 47 years his junior. They renewed their vows on their fifth wedding anniversary. (Fifteen years after Grant's death, Harris would marry former Kansas Jayhawks All-American quarterback David Jaynes in 2001.)<ref>Mayer, Bill.

Retirement and death

File:Cary Grant - publicity.JPG

Cary Grant retired from the screen at 62 when his daughter Jennifer was born, in order to focus on bringing her up and to provide a sense of permanency and stability in her life. While bringing up his daughter, he archived artifacts of her childhood and adolescence in a (bank quality) room sized vault he had installed in the house. His daughter attributed this meticulous collection to the fact that artifacts of his own childhood had been destroyed during the Luftwaffe's bombing of Bristol in the Second World War (an event that also claimed the lives of his uncle, aunt and cousin as well as the cousin's husband and grandson) and he may have wanted to prevent her from experiencing a similar loss.<ref>Grant, Jennifer. Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2011. ISBN 978-0-307-26710-8.</ref>

Although Grant had retired from the screen, he remained active.

In the late 1960s, he accepted a position on the board of directors at Fabergé. By all accounts this position was not honorary, as some had assumed; Grant regularly attended meetings and his mere appearance at a product launch would almost certainly guarantee its success. The position also permitted use of a private plane, which Grant could use to fly to see his daughter wherever her mother, Dyan Cannon, was working. He later joined the boards of Hollywood Park, the Academy of Magical Arts (The Magic Castle, Hollywood, California), Western Airlines (now Delta Air Lines) and MGM.<ref name=Jaynes-Trach>Jaynes, Barbara Grant and Robert Trachtenberg. "Cary Grant: A Class Apart." Turner Classic Movies, Burbank, California: Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and Turner Entertainment, 2004.</ref>

He was a keen motoring enthusiast and owned many notable cars like many other Hollywood stars of the era. One of the first he owned was a 1929 Cadillac Cabriolet. His love of Cadillacs never waned and he later purchased a Biarritz Cadillac. Other cars that he owned included an MG Magnette and a Sunbeam Alpine series one roadster.

In the last few years of his life, Grant undertook tours of the United States in a one-man show, A Conversation with Cary Grant, in which he would show clips from his films and answer audience questions. Grant was preparing for a performance at the Adler Theatre in Davenport, Iowa, on the afternoon of November 29, 1986, when he sustained a cerebral hemorrhage (he had previously suffered a stroke in October 1984). He died at 11:22 p.m.<ref name=Jaynes-Trach/> in St. Luke's Hospital at the age of 82. The bulk of his estate, worth millions of dollars, went to his fifth wife, Barbara Harris, and his daughter, Jennifer Grant.<ref>Decker, Cathleen.
