Movies starring Cary Grant

Sylvia Scarlett

Sylvia Scarlett (1935)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

When "Sylvia Scarlett" was released way back in 1935 it was the first of 4 movies which Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant made together but was more notable for being a flop. The public didn't get and to be honest I can see wh...

The Amazing Quest of Ernest Bliss

The Amazing Quest of Ernest Bliss (1936)   3/53/53/53/53/5

80 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

At just 61 minutes long and having fallen into the public domain "The Amazing Quest of Ernest Bliss" which is also known as "The Amazing Adventure" is the sort of movie where your expectations are not really high. And if trut...

The Awful Truth

The Awful Truth (1937)   4/54/54/54/54/5

91 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Do you want to know what the awful truth is; "The Awful Truth" only works because of Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. That may sound harsh because "The Awful Truth" is a much loved screwball comedy which is directed by Leo McCarey...


Holiday (1938)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

It's quite sad that it takes a movie over 70 years old to put a smile on my face and keep it there from start to finish but that is the case of "Holiday" or "Free to Live" as it is also known. More remarkably is that "Holiday...

Bringing Up Baby

Bringing Up Baby (1938)   5/55/55/55/55/5

102 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Considering when originally released back in 1938 it was a flop it's kind of ironic that now "Bringing Up Baby" is held in such high esteem as one of the greatest screwball comedies ever made. And to be honest it deserves the...

Only Angels Have Wings

Only Angels Have Wings (1939)   3/53/53/53/53/5

121 mins     Adventure , Drama, Romance      

The storyline to "Only Angels Have Wings" has 3 main elements you have the Dutchman who runs a postal service deep in Baranca where he is struggling for money and so requires Geoff Carter to run the air mail service which ris...

Gunga Din

Gunga Din (1939)   3/53/53/53/53/5

117 mins     Action , Adventure , War      

I may be wrong but I suggest there are two types of people who would watch "Gunga Din" now, those who know Rudyard Kipling's poem on which the story is based and those who spot an actor they like and by that I pretty much mea...

In Name Only

In Name Only (1939)   3/53/53/53/53/5

94 mins     Drama, Romance      

"In Name Only" is anything but a complicated movie. We have Alec who wants to leave his unhappy marriage to start one with the beautiful Julie but finds his manipulative wife is not going to make things easy leading to despai...

His Girl Friday

His Girl Friday (1940)   5/55/55/55/55/5

92 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

It would be a fair judgement to say that great movies never grow tiresome, you can watch them time after time and still get as much out of them as you did the very first time. Howard Hawk's "His Girl Friday" is one such movie...

The Philadelphia Story

The Philadelphia Story (1940)   5/55/55/55/55/5

112 mins     Comedy, Romance      

What can you say about a movie which regularly features in the top half of almost every important top 100 movie list other than it is great. "The Philadelphia Story" is without a doubt a brilliant movie a 5 out of 5 which des...

My Favorite Wife

My Favorite Wife (1940)   4/54/54/54/54/5

88 mins     Comedy, Romance      

It's difficult because as a fan of Doris Day I enjoyed watching her and James Garner in "Move Over, Darling" but it's just not as good as the original "My Favourite Wife". The reason being is that the romantic fun of "My Favo...


Suspicion (1941)   4/54/54/54/54/5

99 mins     Drama, Mystery, Thriller      

Whilst Alfred Hitchcock made more praiseworthy movies than "Suspicion" it is one of my favourites. Why? Well it is a combination of things starting with the simple fact that Cary Grant is cast as a charmer, a familiar role bu...

Penny Serenade

Penny Serenade (1941)   3/53/53/53/53/5

119 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

I generally like movies which star either Cary Grant or Irene Dunne but for some reason "Penny Serenade" has never done very much for me. I put it down to the curious mixture of story and tone because on one hand we have quit...

Once Upon a Honeymoon

Once Upon a Honeymoon (1942)   3/53/53/53/53/5

117 mins     Comedy, Romance, War      

I like screwball comedies and I don't mind propaganda movies but combining the two well "Once Upon a Honeymoon" shows that it is a bad idea. Now I can understand what director Leo McCarey was attempting to do, he was trying t...

Mr. Lucky

Mr. Lucky (1943)   3/53/53/53/53/5

100 mins     Comedy, Romance      

Mr. Lucky (1943) Cary Grant stars as Joe Adams, a con man who finds himself falling for Dorothy (Laraine Day), the woman he is planning on conning...

None But the Lonely Heart

None But the Lonely Heart (1944)   3/53/53/53/53/5

113 mins     Drama, Romance      

When "None But the Lonely Heart" was released audiences didn't like it for a variety of reasons and I agree with some especially in the fact this story of a young man forced to reassess his life is drawn out and slow. But the...


Notorious (1946)   4/54/54/54/54/5

101 mins     Romance, Thriller      

The first time I watched Alfred Hitchcock's "Notorious" I thought good movie but what's all the fuss about, why do so many people rate it as one of Hitchcock's best. It forced me into watching it again to try and work out why...

The Bishop

The Bishop's Wife (1947)   4/54/54/54/54/5

109 mins     Comedy, Drama, Fantasy      

The Bishop's Wife: Cary Grant stars as Dudley the angel sent to help out the stressed Bishop Henry (David Niven) but only adds to his stress...

The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer

The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance      

"The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" which is also known as "Bachelor Knight" is another one of those vintage screwball comedies which stars Cary Grant. Now that alone normally means that this will be a lot of fun but "The Bach...

Every Girl Should Be Married

Every Girl Should Be Married (1948)   3/53/53/53/53/5

85 mins     Comedy      

With a title which in today's world would be deemed sexist it probably comes as no surprise that "Every Girl Should Be Married" is a product of a bygone era when such thoughts were not so frowned upon. But it is also a battle...
