  1. I agree with Sunny…love Frank Capra's movies…they make me smile. Cary Grant was very suave and sophisticated with a lovely dry sense of humor. I never heard that bit about being a spanker but it wouldn't surprise me. 😉

    Hugs and Blessings…

  2. Yes, Capra made feel-good movies avant la lettre. My mum also loved his movies, so I kind of grew up with them. It reminds me to go and look for a DVD-box with recordings on all his movies.

    In all the repeats here on Dutch television, and boy, they do repeat a lot, never seen a Capra movie in a long long time.

    It so wonderful you even know the guy,

  3. Not so long ago I dropped In a conversation one of my favourite Capra movies Mr Smith goes to Washington. And everybody looked at me like: this guy is born in the dinosaur era. What are the odds that I find here two people already who know – and like – the old Capra movies?

    Gary Grant was when I was young kind of a – well I guss we would say nowadays – a role model for me. Gary Grant now that was someone I looked up to. It didn't matter Grant was old when I was young.
    Strange fellow, Han.

    Amazing in the old fashioned meaning of the word, Cat. Thank you so much for your comment,

  4. My favorite Cary Grant movies are “Bringing Up Baby”, “Walk Don't Run”, “Father Goose”, “Operation Petticoat”, “Houseboat”, “To Catch a Thief”, “The Bishop's Wife”, and “Arsenic and Old Lace”. There are others but these are the only ones that I can think of the correct title at the moment. 😉

  5. Once told by an interviewer, “Everybody would like to be Cary Grant,” Grant is said to have replied, “So would I.” You are way too young Mona Lisa and so is the lot of us I think. Gary Grant was born in 1904 and died, age 82, in 1986. Cat made above your post a splendid list of his films.

    Frank Capra was a director and was born in 1897 and died in 1991, 94 years old. Wow. Frank Capra made movies in the 1930's. They are black and white movies and the stories are just, well, I remembered them all my life. Hardly ever seen on the television here, black and white movies. Such a shame.

    Thank you for your comment, you can still buy them at Amazon or your local shop can order them I think.

  6. He was a gorgeous man. Even in old age, he had that beautiful silver hair framing his always tanned face.

    Ray and I once sat in a restaurant booth next to him and he was gorgeous in person too – sans movie make-up.
