To millions, Cary Grant epitomizes the glamour and style of Hollywood in its golden years. Handsome, debonair, yet never seeming to take himself too seriously, he was pursued onscreen by some of the most beautiful women in the history of the movies. In a career that spanned seventy-two films, he went from being the matinee idol in She Done Him Wrong, alongside Mae West, to the brooding C. K. Dexter Haven opposite Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story; from the enigmatic spy who hypnotized Ingrid Bergman in Notorious to the smiling jewel thief whom Grace Kelly could not resist in To Catch a Thief. While Cary Grant could flawlessly make screwball comedy his own in films like Bringing Up Baby, he could also convey a fascinating menace, as in Suspicion.

His private life also revealed a dark, elusive side to the perfectionistic Grant, which emerged especially in his successive divorces. In this superbly produced biography, Geoffrey Wansell's illuminating text -- illustrated with 150 exquisite photographs -- traces the threads of both light and dark in this Hollywood immortal.
