.Steve......YOU are on a roll! Cary Grant? The most wonderful all-around actor of the Classic era!! By that, I mean, he could literally do it all. He could portray any character.....master any role....from Drama to action to COMEDY. Truly, of his male peers.....no one could do comedy like Cary, IMO. Arsenic & Old Lace....Bringing up Baby......Operation Petticoat. LAUGH!

Bottom line, I am a fan of the classics, which is why I love seeing you do these hubs....such as Carey, James Cagney etal.....

Are these posters possibly of collection of YOURS??? That would be so awesome......but could you actually display hundreds of posters somewhere??

Up..........+++ and shared.

Hello Paula, thanks for commenting, voting and sharing!

Some of these are from my personal collection and I've already displayed hundreds through these hubs. What I hope I'm doing is get people in the mood to watch a few of these classic films.

Cary Grant was the man, debonair, charming, has he ever played a villain? I haven't seen all his films but I can't imagine him playing a nasty character. In Hitchcock's film Suspicion Joan Fontaine suspected Cary might be trying to kill her... ooh I will say no more. :)

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for doing a hub on one of my favorites. I have been a Cary Grant fan since my high school days(only about 30 years ago). I was sick one day and I found Bringing up Baby playing on AMC. I was amazed that a black and white movie could actually entertain me. This did two things for me....turned me into a Cary Grant fan and opened my eyes to the wonderful world of classic movies.

I have seen ever single one of the movies that you have included posters for....I really like the Belgian poster of To Catch A Thief. Charade is one of my favorites....but I wish they would have included some of the supporting characters on the poster.

Excellent addition....voted up and shared.....you are cranking out quality hub after quality hub.

Bruce, Carol, thanks for visiting my Cary Grant poster hub, much appreciated.

Bruce, it's great to know Cary Grant introduced you to a whole new world of movie classics. My dad was a fan of old Hollywood movies and I grew up watching these on the telly with him, I get very nostalgic just looking at these posters!

Your hub on Cary Grant's films is one of your most viewed and just shows how loved this actor still is.

There are 40 different posters for Charade none of them really outstanding. I thought the American one I posted above was the best and least cluttered.

Unless I'm mistaken Cary Grant has never appeared in a western! War films, comedies, weepies, historical films but no westerns?

Carol, glad you liked the hub and thanks for posting!

He had some that were close.....The Howards of Virginia is pretty close ....and Pride and the Passion almost seems like a western...granted it takes place many years before most westerns take place. His costume piece movies did not do very well....I think most movie lovers enjoyed him in a tuxedo versus riding a horse.

No horror, science fiction or westerns for Cary, but he did appear in a couple of fantasy films - Topper - where he played a ghost and in - The Bishop's Wife - he plays an angel.

IMHO Cary Grant was among the greatest! You are right, he never played a villain. The book "Notorious" was based on would have had Cary Grant kill his wife at the end. Hitchcock said, "You can't do that, I can't have Cary Grant be a murderer." However, Hitchcock also said that Grant was his favorite leading man and that he always noticed the darker side of Grant's persona - the devil behind the mask.

Anther great hub by the great Steve Lensman.

Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

Thanks Mary, appreciate the comment, info, votes and kind words.

While Cary never played a nasty villain, he did play a retired cat burglar in To Catch a Thief, there were shades of grey to many of his roles.

Thanks as always for posting.

Cary Grant was a unique actor. He seemed to more or less play himself in many of his films (or at least the "self" he'd made for us to see) and the audiences loved it. One question: wasn't there a very early black and white set in London where a very young Cary Grant played a ne'er-do-well who loved his mother? Sorry, that's all I remember.

Hi David, there are quite a few early Cary Grant films I haven't seen, don't remember anywhere he plays a young mama's boy. The earliest films I've seen him in are the two Mae West films She Done Him Wrong and I'm No Angel, both out in 1933.
