Most men were well dressed and well groomed back then although I think Cary Grant was always one of the better dressed men.

^ Always.
I suppose that now a days since guys aren't so well kept anymore, when you find one that is, it would appear that he is metro.

kateelle if you haven't seen a Cary Grant you really should. I think a lot of his appeal is his charm and charisma which you can only see when he is onscreen. He is a great actor and a true legend.

^ That is what I was gonna say.

He really is fabulous. I'm in love with him.

All though the closest I will ever get to him is: I know someone who knows the son of the man who pronounced Cary Grant dead.

Weird huh?

Hollywood Collection: Cary Grant, THE LEADING MAN

Cary Grant was the very essence of a movie star: a man every woman loved and every man wanted to be. His deft comic style merged easily with his strength as a romantic leading man. But the suave exterior concealed a complex and often sensitive individual. Cary's painful journey from his lonely working-class beginnings to the peak of Hollywood royalty is made vivid through family photos, archival footage, clips from many of his films -- including his first, following his discovery by blonde bombshell Mae West, starring role in She Done Him Wrong. Other movies include His Girl Friday, Notorious, An Affair To Remember, To Catch A Thief, North By Northwest, Charade, and more. Among friends and colleagues interviewed on-screen are Leslie Caron, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr, Deborah Kerr, Eva Marie Saint, Ralph Bellamy, Stanley Donen, Richard Brooks and Stanley Kramer. Narrated by Richard Kiley.

Aww cute pics Kochie! One of the things I really love about him is that he crafted his own image - I mean, it was really him who put all the work into his wardrobe, not some stylist, he had all these tricks and everything. Very smart guy, and so adorable and funny too
