I adored this book and Miss Donaldson's writing. Yes, we all want more insight on the private life of Grant , and this book delivers an honest look inside. Grant was a delicious screen idol , a bit of a genius to say the least , but like most people very gifted, there is the other side to their persona. What does bother the reader , especially after reading several books on Grant , are the small inconsistencies, maybe not told by the writer, but by Grant himself. Me thinks he rewrote his life story so many times, not intended lying , but to rewrite , retell and perfect it , so many times, that each detail changed to a certain degree to suit the listener. In one book Howard Hughes would not leave Grant's home he rented from Grant , and the next book , Grant bought the house from Hughes? One thing is certain , the line from Charade is always wrong , Audrey H never said " ABSOLITELY NOTHING" to Grant's character in the film Charade. Her line was , " You know what is wrong with you ?.. NOTHING ", which makes a big difference when conveying her feelings for him.. I do know that M D did a great job telling her Affair To Remember Story, smoothly and respectfully . I , like M D , will always adore Cary Grant , warts and all. On a completely well, silly level , I was glad to know that Grant was a wonderful lover, and not an overly endowed one at that . Finally an answer to the great screen idol question , one better not talked about , but glad it was mentioned. Does that read as creepy ? Oh well.. A Great Read , Enjoy . PS: Cary Grant , was is , and will always be a great star, and a man with very good taste in women.. WHAT A LIFE He HAD, and continues to have.
