Cary, Cary, Cary--they just don't make pretty male actors with effortless class, charm and style like this man anymore. Deep sigh. Cary even said about himself, "You say everybody wants to be Cary Grant? Even I want to be Cary Grant." Look and drool people.
This has lots of high quality photos with little information but the photos alone are worth it.
Not a lot of text but really gorgeous photos and archival pictures - movie posters, etc.
