Archibald Alexander Leach created the stage name Cary Grant and it seems that he even wanted to be Cary Grant as well. The title of this blog post is a quote from the great man himself. He was born in Bristol, England but later in his life once he reached the Hollywood leading man status he gained American citizenship.
He was nominated twice for an Academy Award but only ever won an honorary Oscar. Grant has often been voted the greatest movie star of all time – if not coming first he is very near the top. His charisma and on-screen presence really was just incredible, he had a brilliant charm and manner that it was impossible not to love him.
