I've always been a Cary Grant fan but this past week I made a decision that he was absolutely perfect looking in his prime (see dreamy photo at left) and pretty darn hot in middle (see North by Northwest) and old age, too.
Part of his appeal is his humor, which seems to show up in many roles he was in. I want to believe he was playing himself. Have you ever seen Suspicion? Jeff and I were cracking up at him constantly though the Hitchcock movie was supposed to be suspenseful (and was, too).
Anyway, given my feelings toward Daniel Craig, it came as a surprise to me that I would take Cary Grant any day over him. Now if only Cary Grant would have worn a swimsuit Daniel Craig Casino Royale style...
IMPORTANT UPDATE: According to IMDB, Ian Fleming was supposed to have modeled James Bond with Cary Grant in mind. It is all making sense to me.
