He is amazing in this movie; not a big Fontaine fan though.
Even in the most dreadful movies, he was pretty amazing 😉
So sinister. Such high drama in that little glass of milk and those creepy web like shadows. Love this photo.
I had a friend shoot a portrait of another friend in a recreation of this scene. I wish I could say I helped in any way, but I just stood around and gawked.
THE classic Suspicion pic and a *fabulous* bad pun! Parfait! I really like the ingeniousness of putting a light bulb into the glass to create that sinister phosphorescent glow.
I stole it from an ad campaign – however, the stars of said ad were a couple of talking cows. I can feel Mr. Grant frowning upon me from up on high…
As well he should, as well he should… 😉 Love your ingenuity Ms Vickie!
we adore cary grant.
especially when funny Mr. Curtis references him in that other movie saying “Nobody Talks Like That!”
Some Like it Hot…
Yes. We certainly DO 😉
reference within a reference ——–
do you recall in “Sex and the Single Girl” where Natalie says that Mr. Curtis looks like Jack Lemmon when he’s wearing her robe?
felt like the screenwriters probably shared a tuna fish sandwich on rye in the MGM commissary and wanted to secretly record their conversation for posterity through celluloid.
Based on the Helen Gurly Brown book! I’ve never seen it and now I have to 🙂
As you know, Cary Grant remains my favorite star/actor. His walk up that staircase, lit as he was in wonderful B&W cinematography, was simply sinister and striking as all get out. A classic image, for sure. Great post, Vickie.
Perhaps THE archetypal movie actor?
The critic David Thomson certainly thinks so, one of his inarguable judgments, I think…
Hoard-of-Useless-Information George aka Mr I’ll Bore Ya to Death 😉
Could you send me a link? I’d love to read that.
Vickie, sorry to answer you so belatedly, I can’t do the link thing but Thomson on Cary can be found in his mammoth New Biographical Dictionary of Film (and the original non-“New” version) an indispensible if sometimes infuriating tome. There’s also an article entitled “Bringing Up Cary” on the New York Re
(oh toot! Sorry) -view of Books website which you can access if you have a membership, which I, alas, am not. Sorry I could not be a greater help.
I do recommend Thomson’s book to you – and to you too Heather! 🙂
haha! What a great picture!
