Cary Grant famously said, Everyone wants to be Cary Grant--even I want to be Cary Grant. His development of that star image required serious work, but he also played a variety of characters requiring special performing talents. He was equally skilled in the screwball farce The Awful Truth,
the dark thriller Notorious, the romantic melodrama An Affair to Remember, the domestic comedy Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, and the social drama None But the Lonely Heart. In a lively style accompanied by many illustrations, James Naremore analyzes these and other of Grant's best films,
demonstrating that he had exceptional talent and greater range than usually recognized.
