Thursday 13: Cary Grant style

Wow, it's been a LONG time since I've done a Thursday 13 list. I thought since yesterday was Cary Grant's birthday I would post clips from 13 Cary Grant films. For information about the movie, just click on the title. Author's note: Well, if he was alive it would have been his birthday yesterday. And he would have been 108. Knowing him, he probably would look good at 108! What a looker he was! :)

Before I get started on my list, here are some fun Cary Grant facts:
-He was born on January 18, 1904 under the name Archibald Alexander Leach. He was given the name Cary Grant by Paramount Studios when he started his film career.
-Out of the 75 characters he portrayed, not one of them was a villain. 
-He was a big baseball fan- supporting the New York Giants (before their move to San Francisco in 1958) and later the Los Angeles Dodgers.
-He turns down roles opposite Audrey Hepburn in both Roman Holiday and Sabrina. He later starred in the movie Charade with her
-He was a fan of Elvis Presley.

Hope everyone has a great day! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel- it's the weekend! It's almost here!!



  1. I ADORE Cary Grant!!!
    I have blogged about him and have a GQ magazine cover on my side bar.
    My favorite Cary Grant movies are That Touch of Mink and Operation Petticoat.
    I agree... he'd be very handsome at 108!

  2. I love Bringing up Baby and The Philadelphia Story!! So funny! :)

  3. Bringing Up Baby and the Bishop's Wife are two of my favorite movies! I haven't seen a Cary Grant movie that I didn't like though...

  4. Oh, I haven't seen a Cary Grant movie in a long time. Thanks.

  5. We drag out Arsenic and Old Lace every now and then. Love that movie and him in it! Who's the girl who plays opposite him in that? I don't recall seeing her in other movies, but then I'm not a huge movie buff (unless it's British, I guess).

    Just hope that light at the end of the tunnel isn't an oncoming train, Rachel. ;-)♥

  6. I'm enjoying your random blog!

  7. I am really ashamed to say I haven't watched a single one of these...I will work on it because I am sure they are all fantastic!

  8. What's your favorite Cary Grant movie? I love a lot of them, but A Touch of Mink might be my favorite as I love Doris Day as well.
