Epigram

As Cary Grant once said and I agree:

“MY  FORMULA  FOR  LIVING  IS  QUITE  SIMPLE.  I  GET  UP  IN  THE  MORNING  AND  I  GO  TO  BED  AT  NIGHT.  IN  BETWEEN,  I  OCCUPY  MYSELF  AS  BEST  I  CAN.”

Archibald Alexander Leach (January 18, 1904 – November 29, 1986), better known by his stage name Cary Grant, was an English actor who later gained American citizenship. 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 Ster of All Time by the American Film Institute.  Noted particularly for his work in comedy but also for drama, Grant’s best-known films include “The Awful Truth” (1937), “Bringing Up Baby” (1938), “Gunga Din” (1939), “The Philadelphia Story” (1940), “His Girl Friday” (1940), Arsenic And Old Lace” (1944), “Notorious” (1946), “To Catch A Thief” (1955), “An Affair To Remember” (1957), “North By Northwest” (1959) and “Charade” (1963).

Nominated twice for the Academy Award For Best Actor, for “Penny Serenade” (1941) and “None But The Lonely Heart” (1944), and five times for a Golden Globe Award For Best Actor, Grant was continually passed over, and in 1970 was given an Honorary Oscar at the 42nd. Academy Awards. Frank Sinatra presented Grant with the award, “for his unique mastery of the art of screen acting with the respect and affection of his colleagues”.
