    Great Examples of Grants Work

    This pack has a very interesting variety of Cary Grants work. Each movie is very good in its own right. Destination Tokyo is a very good war time thriller which includes John Forsythe's film debut. There are 3 very good comedies with leading ladies Myrna Loy and Irene Dunne. In The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, Shirley Temple portrays a spoiled teenager with a lot of 40's slang being tossed about. Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House is a classic film with a pivotal roll being played by Louise Beavers, one of the leading black actress' of her time. Night and Day is a decent musical about the life of Cole Porter where you'll actually hear Grant sing. This film also includes one of Hollywood's great character actors, Monty Wooley who plays himself (a life long friend of Cole Porter).
