Kino Lorber’s new Cary Grant Collection features three of his early leading roles from the mid-1930’s, two of which co-star Joan Bennett. In addition to tracing Grant’s growth as a comedic leading man, the set also doubles as a primer in the evolution of the screwball comedy subgenre over the course of the decade. More
