Cary Grant (born Archibald Alexander Leach; January 18, 1904 – November 29, 1986) was an English stage and Hollywood film actor who became an American citizen in 1942. Known for his transatlantic accent, debonair demeanor and “dashing good looks,” Grant is considered one of classic Hollywood’s definitive leading men.
Grant was named the second Greatest Male Star of All Time (after Humphrey Bogart) by the American Film Institute. He was known for comedic and dramatic roles. His best-known films include Bringing Up Baby (1938), The Philadelphia Story (1940), His Girl Friday (1940), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), Notorious (1946), An Affair to Remember (1957), North by Northwest (1959), and Charade (1963). In addition, Grant was a favorite of Alfred Hitchcock, who called him “the only actor I ever loved in my whole life.”
Oscar nominations include:
- 1941: Nominated for Penny Serenade
- 1944: Nominated for None but the Lonely Heart
Cary Grant was continually passed over for film industry and critics’ awards; he was nominated twice for an Oscar and five times for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. In 1970, he was presented an Honorary Oscar at the 42nd Academy Awards by Frank Sinatra “for his unique mastery of the art of screen acting with the respect and affection of his colleagues.”
