Cary Grant: The Lonely Heart

Cary Grant: The Lonely Heart

by Charles Higham (Author), RoyMoseley (Author)


This biography of Cary Grant covers his reaction to his father's death and the subsequent stress caused by this and the conflict of hiding his true nature from the world, that of a West Country working-class lad. These help to explain Grant's extreme behaviour and rare moments of happiness, when he could be himself and reveal his love of music-hall songs, bangers and mash, vulgar humour and fish and chips. Charles Higham's previous biographies include those of Katherine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Errol Flynn and The Duchess of Windsor. Roy Moseley's previous biographies include those of Merle Oberon, Roger Moore and Rex Harrison and a personal account of his friendship with Bette Davis, "Bette: An Intimate Memoir".
