    Cary Grant invented the personna that he used in virtually every movie he was in. (after he became a star) He showed a good deal more range in his early films but I have to say he was wonderful to watch on the big screen. Some of my faves: "Father Goose", "Operation Petticoat", "Charade" with the lovely Audrey Hepburn, "North by Northwest", and a less stellar film but one I enjoy is "Arsenic and Old Lace". Also the only way you could be sure of someones' sexual orientation is if you had an encounter with them. Otherwise, you are just passing along rumors.

    He usually played the same character; however, I must bump him to 5 stars because of his presence, bearing and appearance.

    Even with his understated mannerisms and often self-deprecating aura, Cary Grant certainly had a strong screen presence. Grant's style and delivery was always witty, cerebral, and "I'm above all of this" (situational), but at the same time he almost always related to the average Joe. In some ways, Cary Grant and Hugh Grant are similar in this regard. Clearly from my comments, I consider the elder Grant a five star classical actor.

    I haven't seen a tremendous amount of his work, but just finished watching "The Bishop's Wife" which was a charming holiday fairy-tale for adults (not that it's germane to a critique of Grant, but Loretta Young is absolutely lovely in the film). I can't say that Grant was a great actor based on the work of his that I've seen, but he did light comedy very well, and had an insouciant charm that's still irresistable all these years later. And I can safely guess that he was second only to Clark Gable as a favorite of the female viewership. Wonder if there was anything to those rumors about him and Randolph Scott...(not that there's anything wrong with it if they're true...)

    Suave, debonair, funny but oh so good! Grant personified himself in many ranges throughout his long career. A talent for the ages.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Cary's films and was a handsome and capable actor. I just choke on the irony that many people adored him, and his awesome image, and he was a homosexual (or at least bisexual). The rumours were very much substantiated, and (for the record) someone marrying a woman doesn't make them straight, just married. Just goes to show how Hollywood can hide elements of actor from the public. Anyway, he should be remembered as the great performer he was.

    Grant had this sort of suave, classic appeal that no one else has been able to put across the screen. He was smolderingly sexy, wonderfully handsome and fantastically classy and dignified. His performance was always true and never comprimised. In other words, incredibly attractive, amazingly great actor.

    I enjoyed the Flintstones version of Cary much more than the always-the-same characteristics of this so-so actor.

    I like Cary Grant, he's handsome and funny. He's a good actor but he doesn't really have much of a range. He usually plays the same kind of character all the time. But whenever there's a Cary Grant movie on I watch it. I wish they were on more often.

    You've got to give credit where credit is due. This guy was a class act. Every woman adored him, every man wanted to be him. And he could act too. Comedies, dramas, thrillers (i.e. Hitchcock). Not the every man that Jimmy Stewart was, who is my other favorite actor of the classic era. Seeing them together in The Philadelphia Story remains a total joy.

    Cary Grant invented coolness. It was once said that everybody wanted to be like Cary Grant, even Cary Grant. I must also add that he had a very good taste for women and was married to some of the most youngest and beautiful women of the time, despite the rumors of his bi-sexualness.

    How cool was this guy? Watch 'Charade'. In short, Cary Grant was among the greatest actors ever to grace the silver screen. Blessed not only with style, Grant was a natural at his craft, eliciting a wide range of emotions from moviegoers. Epitomizing suave, he was who Ian Fleming imagined James Bond should be and hoped for to fill the legendary role.

    I can't believe that people don't rate Cary Grant higher than this. He is probably the best and most diverse of Classic Actor ever. I mean I could watch Philadelphia Story, Notorius (sp?) and North By Northwest forever and never get tired of them and always find something new to appreciate about Cary Grant's acting and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    Great comedic actor. I admit, I haven't seen him in any of his dramatic roles, but he was brilliantly funny in the classic comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace and was also good in That Touch of Mink.

    An actor who was best at comedy or at instilling a comic element into dramatic roles. Very strong.

    This guy was good looking and very suave, adroit at light comedy and convincing at times in dramatic roles, but he's one of the most overrated actors in Hollywood history. He appeared in alot of undistinguished crap, and was undistinguished in doing so: his agent should have gotten him some better roles. Very good in "Notorious" and "North By Northwest" and "Father Goose." One of the biggest closet cases in Tinsel Town: he could take it or snake it, and that was career-threatening conduct back in the primitive and unenlightened past. But he wasn't alone in this...

    If you don't see him in anything else, see him with Mae West in the film adaptation of Diamond Lil called _She Done Him Wrong_. AMAZING!

    He was a man that all other men should be judged by. There has not been anyone close to the gentleman that was Cary Grant.

    "North By Northwest", "To Catch A Thief", "Notorious", "Father Goose", "Charade" and he never won an Oscar for any of these? What a shame! He was THE leading man of all leading men, a great photogenic actor.

    Even now, after all these years, and after countless other handsome faces have come and gone, Cary Grant is still the one Hollywood actor I want to be most like. He knew how to handle the verbal barrages of beautiful women with a smile and a witty comeback, and it seemed as though he ALWAYS got to the woman rather than vice versa. The personification of style and class, he knew the importance of "never letting them see him sweat," even while carrying out timeless comedy. I'm sure that as we speak, he's making the angels blush in Heaven.

    Hard to choose between Grant and Stewart as to which would be my favourite all-time "classic" actor, although Grant is probably JUST in front, since he looked so much like my grandfather who I loved to bits. Grant was charismatic, classy and a true gentleman, unfortunately, they don't make them like him any more!

    The best actor of all time. From "His Girl Friday" and "Arsenic and Old Lace" to "North by Northwest" and "Charade" there is no one better. Comedy, drama, or action - he could do it all.
