Yeah he is!!! Besides being suave, I love his sense of comedic timing in movies like Arsenic and Old Lace and Bringing Up Baby.

More Cary Grant reviews
review by . May 18, 2009
Cary Grant is one of my favorite actors.  There is no other leading man that exudes as much class & sophistication while making you laugh your butt off.  He had spot on comedic timing & can deliver a dead-pan line like no one else I've seen.  On top of all that, he was incredibly good looking.      I could never understand why he didn't get more recognition for his acting ability.  I suppose Hollywood would have taken him more seriously …

About this actor

Wiki

The actor that we know as Cary Grant was born Archibald Alexander Leach on January 18, 1904 in Bristol, England.  He is known for being the epitome of class but he actually came from very humble beginings. 

At the age of 14, he ran away from his life in the England slums to join a comedy troup.  There, he developed his impecible comedic timing & learned the skill of acrobatics (probably why he appears so graceful on-screen).  The group came to the United States & Leach decided to stay on & try his hand at musical theater on Broadway.  He toured theaters throughout the U.S. & was eventually brought to Hollywood. 

He took a new name to become the screen legend, Cary Grant.  His first big break was the film, She Done Him Wrong (1933), starring Mae West.  It was Grant that she invited to "come up some time and see me."  After a few box office bombs, the comedies Topper & The Awful Truth (both from 1937) made him a star. 

He received Academy Award Nominations for his work in the dramas Penny Serenade (1941) & None but the Lonely Heart (1944).   He appeared in 4 Hitchcock movies & 5 Howard Hawks films.  His final film was Walk Don't Run (1966).  He received an honorary Oscar in 1970 for "his unique mastery of the art of screen acting." 

He was married 5 times: to actress Virginia Cherill (1934-1935), to the Woolworth's heress Barbara Hutton ...
