I'm a college student getting my Master's in English, but dreams of getting an additional degree in Film. I'm a movie reviewer for several sites, but I also write classic film reviews for several other sites. I stretch myself pretty thin these days. You can usually find me at a bookstore, or a movie theater. I dream of the day when the two are combined. I base a lot of my friendships on favorite movies.

  1. I enjoyed this podcast. Your lists were interesting. I think of Cary Grant as a star who made a plethora of good to very good films, like To Catch a Thief, with a few masterpieces, like North by Northwest, sprinkled in, so it makes sense that different people might have a very different favorite lists. I’d have to expand my list to four and then have an extra spot for an honorable mention/guilty pleasure.

    1. Charade
    2. North by Northwest
    3. Arsenic and Old Lace
    4. Notorious
    Honorable Mention: Indiscreet, directed like Charade by Stanley Donen, who also directed Singin’ in the Rain and is currently 93.

    Arsenic and Old Lace is the one I believe you guys never mentioned. It’s probably Grant’s most over the top performance, barreling right over the line into parody. A not very Capraesque film directed by Frank Capra, good for some enjoyment and a few laughs around Halloween. A couple of the jokes were lost in translation because Boris Karloff wasn’t available to reprise his role from the original play, but one of my favorite Grant vehicles all the same.
