This week, Q Night at the Movies celebrates one of the most definitive leading men from the Golden Age of Hollywood – Cary Grant. Hollywood Idols starts the night with a profile of the prodigious actor. On Story follows with an episode about romantic comedies, one of Grant’s favored genres. Round out the night with a screening of Grant’s movie Only Angels Have Wings.
With a winning combination of comic style and leading-man charisma, Cary Grant was the essence of a star. But the suave exterior concealed a complex individual. Family photos, archival footage and film clips vividly convey Grant’s journey from lonely, working-class beginnings to the peak of Hollywood royalty.
The screenwriters (Abby Kohn, Geoff LaTulippe, Dana Stevens, Marc Silverstein, Marcie Mayhorn-Moderator) behind Never Been Kissed, Safe Haven, Going The Distance and He’s Just Not That Into You contemplate the important balance of relationship, conflict and originality when creating romantic comedies.
