Mini-Biography:
Cary Grant was born under the given name Archibald Alexander Leach on August 18, 1904 in Horfield, Bristol, England. He was an American Actor, known for Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), His Girl Friday (1940), Bringing up baby (1938), Cary Grant's first movie on record is from 1932. He was married to Virginia Cherrill, Barbara Hutton, Betsy Drake, Dyan Cannon and Barbara Harris. Cary Grant died on November 29, 1986 in Davenport, Iowa, USA . His last motion picture on file dates from 2003.
Biographical Notes in German: Cary Grants Filmkarriere könnte den viel beschworenen Mythos des "American Dream" begündet haben. Denn bevor der Brite 1932 sein Hollywood-Debüt gab, tingelte er mit amerikanischen und englischen Wandertheatern in kurzfristigen Engagements von einer Stadt zu anderen. Nachdem er bei Paramount einen Fünfjahresvertrag unterschrieben hatte, bekam er schnell Hauptrollen. Bereits 1938 zeigte er sein komödiantisches Talent in "Leoparden küsst man nicht".
Mit "Arsen und Spitzenhäubchen" von 1942 schrieb er sich dann in die Annalen des schwarzen Filmhumors ein. Die Geschichte von den naiven Tanten, in deren Keller es nur so vor Leichen wimmelt, genießt noch heute unwiderruflichen Kultstatus.

Einen Vertrag mit einem Filmstudio unterschrieb er nach den ersten Erfolgen nie wieder - das hatte zuvor noch kein Schauspieler gewagt. Grant zog es vor, unabhängig und autonom über seine Rollen zu entscheiden. Der Erfolg hat ihm Recht gegeben.

Bis 1966 spielte er in insgesamt 72 Filmen, die meisten davon wurden zu Klassikern. Vier davon drehte er unter der Regie Alfred Hitchcocks, neben "über den Dächern von Nizza" (1955) noch "Der unsichtbare Dritte", "Verdacht" (1941) und "Berüchtigt" (1946). Grant, der 1904 im englischen Bristol als Archibald Alex Leach geboren wurde, war sich der Künstlichkeit der Filmwelt bewusst, deren Produkt er selbst war. "Alle wollen Cary Grant sein. Sogar ich will Cary Grant sein", hat er einmal seine eigene Existenz selbstironisch umrissen.

Im Alter von 62 Jahren zog er sich ganz bewusst aus dem Filmgeschäft zurück, eine logische Entscheidung, da Grant über sich selbst eine nüchterne Bilanz zog: "Bis zu meinem vierzigsten Lebensjahr war ich ein Idiot ... ein Schauspieler, ein grässlich langweiliger Mensch, der nur mit sich selbst beschäftigt war. Alle sagen mir dauernd, was für ein interessantes Leben ich doch gehabt hätte, aber manchmal glaube ich, dass es nur aus Magenbeschwerden und Selbstbespiegelung bestanden hat."

Bei den Zuschauern wird Grants Hollywood-Image jedoch überdauern: Filmfans ist er als smart und elegant in Erinnerung geblieben. Zweimal war der Schauspieler für den Oscar nominiert, 1970 erhielt er ihn für sein Lebenswerk. Bei Vorbereitungen für seine "One Man Show" erlitt er am 28. November 1986 einen schweren Schlaganfall. Er starb noch in der selben Nacht - knapp zwei Monate vor seinem 82. Geburtstag. (ARD Presse)
