Becoming Cary Grant

Wednesday August 15 at 8.30pm

Australian Premiere | Available on Foxtel On Demand

For most of his life, Cary Grant, one of Hollywood’s greatest stars, was troubled with self–doubt and insecurity – the result of childhood trauma. In his fifties, reaching mid-life, he took a long course of LSD therapy, hoping to exorcise his demons. Using words from his unpublished autobiography and newly discovered and evocative footage shot by Grant, we explore the star’s journey from childhood poverty to global fame and from darkness to light. We discover, for the first time, a different Cary Grant, the man behind the mask of subtle charm and suave sophistication that he wore to hide his insecurities.

This is the moving story of a man in search of himself, on a quest to find the love that eluded him for most of his life.

Following is an ‘Orry Kelly’ documentary, ‘Women’s He’s Undressed’ – the Australian fashion designer that has dressed the stars of Hollywood and is said to have had a secret relationship with Cary Grant.
