Cary Grant & Class Acting / Marc Elliott
“Everybody wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant.” So, once said Cary Grant. Born Archibald Leach in Bristol, England, at nine his was abandoned by his father and told that his mother had died. (She hadn’t.) At 14 he ran away and joined the circus. (OK, an acrobat troop but you get the idea.) By 20 he was honing his public persona of Cary Grant, the world’s most elegant man. Best selling author Marc Eliot has delved deeply into the lives of 25 and counting fascinating subjects to write his celebrity bios. He joins us with fascinating backstories which help sort myth from man. Plus Fritz and Weezy are recommending, the Pete Souza doc, My Octopus Teacher, Boys State and Acorn’s A Place To Call Home.
