Cary Grant Collector's Set
There are leading men, and then there is Cary Grant. The actor defined suave, bantering with such leading ladies as Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock thrillers as well as starring in a string of light comedies.
The Cary Grant Collector's Set, out Jan. 8, 2008, (prebook Dec. 12) from Lionsgate, touches on the latter part of the actor's body of work. The four-DVD set ($34.98) includes Indiscreet, Operation Petticoat, The Grass Is Greener and That Touch of Mink.
Indiscreet (1958) is about an actress scorned by her lying lover. The film is notable for pairing Grant with another film legend, Ingrid Bergman.
Operation Petticoat (1959) is a comedic romp starring Grant and Tony Curtis as U.S. Navy officers whose crew picks up a group of stranded U.S. Army nurses, and whose submarine ends up being painted pink. The film received an Academy Award nomination for best screenplay and was briefly adapted into a TV show.
The Grass Is Greener (1960) placed Grant, Robert Mitchum and the late Deborah Kerr in a love triangle. The film was nominated for two Golden Globes.
That Touch of Mink (1962) co-starred Doris Day in an old-fashioned love story about a businessman who falls for a country girl. The problem is he doesn't want to get married, and she won't settle for anything less. The film was nominated for three Oscars.
