DJRD's ultimate leading men

I thought it might be fun (spurred on by this new york times piece) to put a bit more testosterone on the pages of this little ol' blog. Why not, right? can't hurt. So I bring you the DJRD's ultimate leading men series...

Exhibit #1: The One, The Only, Mr. Cary Grant
A cinefile friend of mine named Joe once stated that "Cary Grant is the ultimate leading man"; tall, dark, extremely handsome, suave, impeccably dressed and a complete goofball all at once. I have to agree with this, he is "top banana" in my book of leading lads. He was "Mr. Big" before "Mr. Big" even existed. Practically every time I see a photo of him I am compelled to go on a Cary-Grant-movie-bender. Some of my favorites are: to catch a thief, arsenic & old lace, philadelphia story, and of course charade! But there are many many more.And the man was still hot at 61 (and playing opposite leading ladies half his age, I might add)...


One brief disclaimer, do yourself a favor and don't read about his semi-turbulent personal life. Best not to sour the mystique of our ultimate leading man with the trivialities of reality, I think.


So what are your favorite Cary Grant films? AND furthermore, who are your ultimate leading men?

pixies - - here comes your man

have a a nice weekend!!!
