Summary
Archie Leach was a poorly educated, working-class boy from a troubled family living in the backstreets of Bristol. Cary Grant was Hollywood's most debonair film star - the embodiment of worldly sophistication. This work tells the incredible story of how the sad, neglected boy became the suave, glamorous star. This biography, based on Grant's own personal papers, takes the reader on a fascinating journey from his difficult childhood through years of struggle in music hall and vaudeville, a hit-and-miss career in Broadway musicals, and three decades of film stardom during Hollywood's golden age. The bitter realities of Grant's impoverished childhood are revealed, including his mother's mental illness and his expulsion from school at the age of 14
