9780006367994: Cary Grant: Haunted Idol

Born Archie Leach, the only child of a poor tailor's presser and an unstable mother, in Bristol, England, in 1904, Cary Grant became what the critic Pauline Kael once memorably called "the fairy-tale hero." In Geoffrey Wansell's illuminating study the author traces the threads of both light and dark in this Hollywood immortal.
