Merry Cary 2023 – The Twelve Days of Cary Grant

By December 1, 202312dCG

I celebrate the onset of the holidays every year at the beginning of December with a crawl through a dozen Cary Grant movies, so called The Twelve Days of Cary Grant (aka #12dCG).  There are many exceptional movies to draw from and it’s an opportunity to indulge in the golden age of the cinema and share a drink with one of its smoothest operators.

Selections for this year’s #12dCG are:

Dec. 1 – Mr. Lucky

Dec. 2 – Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House

Dec. 3 – Houseboat

Dec. 4 – Every Girl Should Be Married

Dec 5. – His Girl Friday

Dec. 6 – Only Angels Have Wings

Dec. 7 – People Will Talk

Dec. 8 – Topper

Dec. 9 – I Was A Male War Bride

Dec. 10 – Amazing Adventure

Dec. 11 – Operation Petticoat

Dec. 12 – To Catch a Thief

I generally try not to duplicate films from the year before.  Many of these will be readily recognizable.

Among the rest are a balance of black-and-white vs Technicolor; serious vs frivolous.  There are many different Carys.  It’s best to remember them all.

Feel free to play along at home. Bring on December 1st and roll film.

And thanks, Cary.
