Cary Grant Comedies

15 Episodes

Cary Grant may have been classic Hollywood’s ultimate embodiment of suave sophistication, but thankfully he never took himself too seriously, as seen in these comedy classics that showcase his inimitable flair for farce. A former acrobat who was as adept at delivering sparkling banter as he was at taking a slapstick pratfall, Grant imbued his comic performances with a slyly winking charm and breezy joie de vivre that feels at once effortless and virtuosic. The perfect antidote to the winter blues, these slices of golden-age heaven pair Grant with some of the studio era’s most legendary leading ladies—including Katharine Hepburn (HOLIDAY), Myrna Loy (MR. BLANDINGS BUILDS HIS DREAM HOUSE), and Ingrid Bergman (INDISCREET)—and let the screwball sparks fly.
