Cary Grant

On Twitter, a query: "Best Cary Grant movies to watch with daughters? Thanks in advance." She got suggestions she thinks will last to the end of "Shelter at Home." Some of the responses, films I know and enjoy (Updated with some cast information on 5/3):
  • Bringing Up Baby (Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn)
  • The Philadelphia Story (Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, and James Stewart)
  • To Catch A Thief (Hitchcock directing Cary Grant and Grace Kelly)
  • Arsenic and Old Lace (Grant, Raymond Massey, Peter Lorre)
  • His Girl Friday (Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy)
  • Charade (Grant, Audrey Hepburn)
  • North by Northwest (Hitchcock directing Grant, James Mason, Eva Marie Saint)
  • Mister Blandings Builds His Dream House (see right)
  • Notorious (Hitchcock directing Grant and Ingrid Bergman)
  • Gunga Din (Grant, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Victor Mclaglen, Sam Jaffe)
  • The Awful Truth (Grant, Irene Dunne, Ralph Bellamy)
  •  Topper (Grant, Constance Bennet, Roland Young)
One of the respondents writes "To Catch a Thief, Charade and His Girl Friday are all excellent and included with Amazon Prime right now." (I haven't checked.)
