Ten Movies on an Island: Cary Grant

What island would be complete without Cary Grant? He's been in my life for as long as I can remember. The first film I saw of his was probably Arsenic and Old Lace (I would leave the room for some of the "scary" parts - Dr. Einstein freaked me out more than Jonathon).
1. Bringing Up Baby (1938)
2. In Name Only (1939)
3. The Philadelphia Story (1940)
4. Once Upon a Honeymoon (1942)
5. Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
6. Notorious (1946)
7. Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948)
8. Operation Petticoat (1959)
9. Monkey Business (1952)
10. Father Goose (1964)
Honorable Mentions: the rest of his films ;) jk. Gunga Din (1939), My Favorite Wife (1940), The Bishop's Wife (1947), Every Girl Should Be Married (1948), I Was a Male War Bride (1949), and Charade (1963).

UPDATE: Need to squeeze Mr. Lucky (1943) in here somewhere...

A few days ago I made a list of Cary Grant films that I haven't seen and there wasn't many (of the ones after he became famous). Out of the films he made before Topper (1937) I've only see Suzy (1936) and I will be watching Sinners in the Sun (1932) for the Hot and Bothered Blogathon.


  1. Cary Grant is my favorite actor. I don't know how it is possible to narrow his movies down to just ten!

  2. Watched both 'Operation Petticoat'(first time seeing it) and 'Notorious' today...wanted to watch 'Suspicion' too, but I don't have it (for some odd reason) and didn't feel like watching on the computer. :)

    1. Awesome! And a nice balance - comedy and suspense :)
