Archie - the movie about Cary Grant

Made by his daughter and Dyan Cannon. I'm intrigued if they address any of the gay rumors.

Without searching, you'd never guess who is playing Grant, or at least I never would have guessed it.

No I didn’t guess, thought it might be Dominic West, and IMDb is being cagey too. The actor who says his (new) name looks like a young Matthew Goode.

Anyway, looks interesting. I’ll watch.

Harry Hamlin?

If Dyan Cannon and her daughter are behind this there'll be nothing about the Gay rumors. Both women have vehemently denied them

It's Jason Isaacs.

Who are playing Jughead and Reggie?

Are you stupid?

1) It's a series, not a movie.

Are you blind?

2) The trailer shows homoerotic scenes.

So who's seen it? What do you think?

Once upon a time, I thought Matt LeBlanc could have played Cary Grant.

Jet Boy for background music in the first episode? That's quite the hint!

Where can I watch this

I downloaded it from my usual site. I don't know where else it might be. Sorry!

Is Orry-Kelly mentioned?

Really, I see no resemblance.

Just finished it -- I thought it was quite good, but then again, I don't know that much about Cary Grant OR Dyan Cannon. Looking forward to reading what you all have to say.

I'm watching it now. Still in his childhood...

The first episode has a jumping timeline but I have noticed some inaccuracies like when North by Northwest was made.

The teen Archie looks like Nicole Kidman and he even wears her old fuzzy hair when he is a stilt walker.

Someone should have told the director - enough with the home movies!

by Anonymousreply 26December 6, 2023 3:24 AM

Dyan hears from another budding actor that Cary is gay. She asks him and he doesn't answer her directly. He just says I have loved a lot of people.

Got through episode 2 where he is in Hollywood. No mention of Orry Kelly and the only reference to Randolph Scott is that they shared a house because it saved them money on rent.

by Anonymousreply 28December 6, 2023 3:50 AM

The series improves with the last episode 4 of 4 where we see the troubled marriage between Cary and Dyan. There is one more gay reference where he comments in his 1986 one-man show that he has been accused of being gay but he doesn't see that as an insult. Of course he also doesn't say he is or was.

The series has cameos from actors as Grace Kelly, Doris Day, Alfred Hitchcock and Alma Reville, Mae West, Danny Kaye, and Audrey Hepburn.

It also shows Dyan singing on The Danny Kaye Show on TV. I didn't know she was a singer.

I noticed it's an all-British production (creator, director, writer, actors, etc.).

Entirely produced by ITV Studios and BritBox.

I guess Americans weren't interested, because they're usually co-financing British projects like this, especially about old Hollywood.

by Anonymousreply 30December 6, 2023 6:54 AM

they weren't interested because I have file an application to trademark the name.

She was Rosemary in the How to Succeed tour, r29.

Have only two episodes been released on BritBox?

by Anonymousreply 33December 10, 2023 1:33 AM

Yes, r33. But in the UK, the whole thing has aired
