Favorite Grant Films  


In an effort to get things started here, I thought it might be nice to have everyone name their favorite Grant performance and why. He made so many great films (and some not so good ones...*cough* The Pride and the Passion *cough*) that I know it is hard to pick just one.

But let's say you were stranded on an island and could only take one of his films (and you would be able to take other films with you, but only one Grant selection. I thought I would throw that in there. Because there is no way I could live on an island with only 1 movie, Grant or no Grant. You know, maybe 5 movies total. *giggle*)...which one would it be?

My pick would be (and if you know me this is ABSOLUTELY no surprise) Notorious. I think Cary completely stepped out of his realm to play the character of T.R. Devlin, a man who is so tormented--something Cary had not done before. He is perfect in that role and each time I watch it I feel differently toward Devlin; sometimes complete hatred and sometimes absolute pity. Such a complex character. Ah! Hitchcock did wonders with Cary.

So what are your picks?

Discuss.
