The Faces of US Immigrants: Cary Grant

Born Archibald Alexander Leach on January 18, 1904, Cary Grant was a British-American actor. With his distinctive accent, he was noted as perhaps the foremost exemplar of the debonair leading man, handsome, virile, charismatic and charming.

He was named the second Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute. His popular classic films include She Done Him Wrong (1933), Topper (1937), The Awful Truth (1937), Bringing Up Baby (1938), Gunga Din (1939), Only Angels Have Wings (1939), His Girl Friday (1940), The Philadelphia Story (1940), Suspicion (1941), The Talk of the Town (1942), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), Notorious (1946), Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948), To Catch A Thief (1955), An Affair to Remember (1957), North by Northwest (1959), and Charade (1963).

Repulsed by the careers it had ruined, Grant publicly condemned McCarthyism in 1953 and defended his friend Charlie Chaplin when the latter was blacklisted.

Cary Grant became a naturalized U.S. citizen on June 26th, 1942. He died on November 29, 1986. Cary Grant was 82 years old.
