Would love to see more documentaries on Cary Grant by Barbara Grant Jaynes
10 March 2016 | by bn-55394See all my reviews

Barbara Grant Jaynes stands out here, in this documentary not only because she is the undisputed love of Cary Grant's life, but mainly because she, so superbly and elegantly, gives us the real Cary Grant. After all who can better "sail Cary Grant ship" if not this beautiful, inside and out lady with a healthy approach to life.I would like to see her again in a full blown documentary on Cary Grant. She carries herself so intelligently and elegantly. Millions of Cary Grant fans, who see his genius mind at work in his movies would truly appreciate her input. For posterity, it is very important that this REAL WOMAN reminiscences and talks about beauty, brilliance and unique person she once called her husband.
