Cary, Cary, Cary (Grant)

One of the biggest stars of the classic Hollywood period, Cary Grant got his start in vaudeville, learning to sing and dance on the job and developing his physical comedy. From the age of ten, he began appearing on stage and spent most of the next twenty years in various touring troupes before his debut on the big screen. This background was instrumental to his success in comedic roles—and combined with his tall, dark, and handsome appearance, it made him a perfect fit for romantic comedies. Consistently cast in the role of the urbane bachelor, Grant often utilized his physical comedy and rapid-fire delivery to undercut the presumed high-born pedigree of his characters, whether he was playing a paleontologist (Bringing Up Baby, 1938), a reporter (His Girl Friday, 1940), a writer (Arsenic and Old Lace, 1942), or an advertising executive (Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, 1948).
