Description
Marc Eliot discusses his book, “Cary Grant.” He begins by discussing Grant's early childhood in Victorian England during which he was called Archie Leach. He then shares that when Grant first came to New York and was trying to get parts on stage as an actor he worked as an escort. Eliot explains that his work as an escort is what most likely helped him create the illusion of the suave Cary Grant figure that he later became associated with. He goes on to explore the importance of Randolph Scott in Cary Grant’s life even after they were both pressured by their studios to marry. Later in the interview Eliot discusses the various women in Grant’s life, including his daughter Jennifer.
