Description

Cary Grant: The Signature Collection includes five classic Cary Grant films, including:

Destination Tokyo

Grant is a military hero in this action- filled war drama. As Captain Cassidy, Grant pilots the U.S. submarine Copperfin through the dangerous waters of the enemy's front yard. Delmer Daves makes his directorial debut with this film that critics say remains "a classic war drama." This is the only military drama Grant made during World War II.

Features:

  • Warner Bros. WWII short: "Gem of the Ocean"
  • Cary Grant Trailer Gallery

    Night And Day

    Appearing in his first Technicolor motion picture, Grant portrays Cole Porter, the legendary, sophisticated songwriter whose life was marked by triumph and tragedy. He's joined by a superb cast including Alexis Smith, Jane Wyman, Eve Arden and Monty Woolley as himself. The film contains more than 20 of Porter’s songs which have been enjoyed by many generations over the years. One of the film's most famous moments is Mary Martin re-creating her Broadway performance of "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," the show-stopper that made her an overnight star. Even Cary gets into the act singing "You're the Top" with '40s chanteuse Ginny Simms. Interestingly, Hollywood is once again bringing Porter's life to the screen later this year, with Kevin Kline portraying the composer in Irwin Winkler's film "DeLovely."

    Features:
  • Vintage Warner Bros. Shorts: "Desi Arnaz and His Orchestra" and "Musical Movieland"
  • Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd in "The Big Snooze" a classic Looney Tunes cartoon
  • Cole Porter Trailer Gallery


    Arsenic & Old Lace

    Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring's 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who ply lonely geezers with poisoned libations, one sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) – and only one night to make it turn out all right. In this circus' centre ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown’s gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet.

    North by Northwest

    Cary Grant teams with director Alfred Hitchcock for the fourth and final time in this superlative espionage caper judged one of the American Film Institute's Top-100 American films and spruced up with a new digital transfer and remixed Dolby Digital Stereo. He plays a Manhattan advertising executive plunged into a realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased and in another signature set piece, crop-dusted. He also holds on for dear life from the facial feature of the President on Mount Rushmore.

    Features:
  • Behind the scenes documentary – Destination Hitchcock, The Making of North by Northwest
  • Feature length audio commentary by screenwriter Earnest Lehman
  • Music only audio track showcasing Bernard Herrmann’s score
  • Hitchcock theatrical trailers and TV spot
