Comments:  I have always loved him, the minute I saw this person. And could not believe someone could be a perfect looking specimen. And then I was more impressed after I heard his story, of how he became who he was and only wished that I could have met him in person.... HE INSPIRES ME TO DREAM AND ACT.

He has shown me the possibilities of romance.  And the importance of laughter.  And that the two can go together.  There will never be another Cary Grant.

My fondest memories of growing up a teenager in the 80's was the Saturday afternoon matinees, on wet miserable days I used to curl up on the sofa under a quilt and watch old black and white movies.  When I was about 18, my boyfriend at the time recommended I watched the Bishops Wife.  That was it, I was hooked.  I am now 32, and recently visited Cary's statue in Bristol, I had my photo taken with my arm linked through his.  My 3 & 5 year old daughters now call me Cary Grants girlfriend whenever they see the photo.  Cary had the persona of a true gent, not many of them anymore.  He had everything, and it all came from nothing, which makes him all the more special.

He made a great impact on me in my twenties.  His style and his class was to me an  inspiration.  Oozed class from head to toe.  A one off.

Cary Grant is a cousin ... My mother's maiden name is Leach - her father's grandfather and Archie Leach's Grandfather were brothers.  My middle name is Archibald.

My Grandmother married Idris Alexander Leach (my mother's maiden name is Leach) My Grandmother always used to say we were related to Cary Grant she said that Idris's Grandfather and Archie Leach's Grandfather were brothers. It would be good to find out if that were true. I always enjoyed watching Cary Grant movies and still do.

Question: Did Cary Grant really write that autobiography, or is it being written with his pen, so to speak?

Cary Grant is the ideal man, I try to model myself after his traits, mannerisms, and style. That is how he inspires me. If only every man were Cary Grant - what a wonderful, and gorgeous, world this would be.

He's my favorite all-time actor.  I constantly search the tv listings, looking for movies that he's starred in.

By watching some of his movies I have been able to forget my problems and relax for a couple of hours.

He is, was, and will always be a fascinating man to me.  He is the epitome of grace, sophistication, charm, wit.  Even if his life was fabricated into a myth and he was forced to live as "Cary Grant" in the public eye... he had the "right stuff" to be able to even carry it off..  they don't make men like that anymore.... he is the ultimate....

Cary Grant had a real sense of style and charmingly good looks which he ensued during his lifetime. He lit up the screen in any movie he played in. Movies today are not made like they used to be--so many today are crude, lewd and obnoxious. I pay tribute to Cary Grant for portraying a gentleman with class. I could watch his movies all day long!

Archie Leach and I have so much in common, although I am a woman and not an actress, but his early life and his sense of humour and his observations in life sure do match my own. I always known I loved the screen legend Cary Grant; however, now I have come to realize that the man Archie Leach is even more the kind of human being I would have like to share a chat with. He's had ups and downs and questioned himself just like mostly everyone else does and that's what makes him more of a greater legend to me. Now I know why I love that persona on the screen, the movies mean so much more to me. I always say and reiterate they don't make men like Gary Grant and/or Archie Leach much any more. I will always cherish him.

He's cool like Bill Murray and Bushy. I would have nominated him for president if he was still alive. He's spiffy like nobody else could be.

No better way of spending an afternoon on one of those cold damp winter days than just touring around my home town, drifting by those houses where Cary lived. They are, very much, still there and in good order.

My father's step-mother was Doris Southam (nee Pender) Bob's daughter, and often spoke about Archie (as she called him, after making sure we knew it was Cary Grant). She fell on hard times in old age, and was very angry with Archie, saying her father had loaned him the fare home after they left him in America, and often used to say that she would go and find him when he came to England and hit him with her handbag until he paid up! I was pleased to read Cary's kind words about that money, and the Penders in general, in his autobiography and would love to know more about Bob. I read somewhere that his real name was Robert Lomas, and as I have a hand written passport dated in the 1880s in the name of Thomas Lomas, I wonder if this is Bob's father? Does anyone have any information about the family before Bob?

Well, I found out recently that Cary was my Dads second cousin. His Father and my Dad's Grandmother were brother and sister. Before my Dad died he told my Mother that he could remember meeting Cary when he (my Dad) was a young child. There was a rerun of Cary Grant movies here every Friday night for a couple of months and that reminded my Mother of what Dad had said. Needless to say I was quite pleased!!

Aloha Debbie, this site is WONDERFUL! There are so many ways that Cary Grant has impacted my life, but joining the Warbrides has to be the most rewarding.

Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work putting this site together.  What I especially like is that you can read all about Archie/Cary and still have his handsome face right there on the screen!

Mahalo (Thank You),

His life has an eery parallel to someone who was very near and dear to me.  Because of this I think I understand both men more clearly.

It was about a year and a half ago that I was feeling very low mentally and physically, and out of the blue during Cary Grant's birthday celebration on TCM, I saw one Cary Grant movie after another, and began to notice a pattern there.  I was fascinated with his total being and decided to try to find out more about him.  I got on the internet and found books through Amazon.com, purchased a couple, and then started looking for his movies and started purchasing them also.  I also found the War Brides, and began talking to them, and soon found out that Cary Grant left behind 72 movies.  What Cary Grant did for me was make me realize that if you are not happy with your life, you can go about to change it.  I found myself putting Cary Grant sayings into my conversations with people, purchased all the movies and started studying them, and reading as much of his personal life that I could in a very short period of time.  I needed to find self-esteem, find happiness with my situation since my husband has Parkinson's Disease.  Cary was able to find happiness and success even though he came from a considerable lowly beginning, and then become everything.  I figure he acted his way through many of his bad moments.  I figured that I could do the same, and it worked.  Pretend you are someone else, and pretty soon you find you have become that person.  Cary will always be near and dear to me because he helped me through such a rough time in my life.  It is great to pop in a film, see what he has done, and laugh.  I am giving a Cary Grant seminar next month at Miami University to The Institute for Learning in Retirement.  I want to share his life with as many people as I can because it makes me happy to spread the word about his wonderful movies, his personal heartaches, and how he overcame the many obstacles put in his path throughout his lifetime.  Go, Cary!!!

Regarding your wonderful web site, I really feel the need to tell you a short tale.  Without going into detail, we had a very sad situation happen within our immediate family which was devastating.  To say that we were at the bottom of the barrel is an understatement.  One day my husband came home with North by Northwest in his hand.  A video store was going out of business, and he thought the movie looked good and he bought it.  Needless to say, we enjoyed it immensely!  Neither my husband nor myself had gone to movies growing up.  Of course we had heard of Cary Grant, but we did not know anything about him.  It only took one movie and we were hooked.  We would scour the video stores to find each movie that we could.  We found ourselves smiling, laughing, and (little by little) getting back to normal.  We soon decided to collect his movies so we could enjoy them over and over.  This required my learning how to access the internet and check Ebay.  Somehow, I ended up at your web site.  The information on your web site and the friendly tone of the information encouraged me to learn more about Cary Grant the man.  I have read all the CG books at three different libraries and have a personal collection of 12 books.  And I am on the computer every day checking Ebay to see what is available.  As a matter of fact, you out bid me on the Cary Grant Pavillion glasses!  But the important thing is that during the very difficult last four years, my husband and I had something else to do--something to take our minds off our troubles and make us smile.  As Ms. Kael said "Just looking at Cary Grant makes you smile."  My husband and I would play your quiz over and over again.  We have read every word on your web site and continue to access it frequently for the latest CG news.  We even have two Cary Grant roses that are blooming profusely.

There is no doubt in my mind that God was guiding my husband to purchase that first video.  This Cary Grant thing was the glue that held our marriage together.  As we read the books and learned how CG had overcome adversity and unhappiness, it gave us hope.  This man who had been dead since 1986 has had a huge impact on our lives.  And to think he felt he would be forgotten when he quit making movies!  And your web site was a large part of this experience.  Please do not give up!  Anyone who reads your words knows this is a labor of love for you.  You will never know how many people have benefited from your hard work and how much you are appreciated.  I am just one person, but I am absolutely positive there are hundreds more just like me.

God bless you for your hard work and the loving way in which you do it.
