Last week, I sat down to play an amusing game of Apples to Apples with a few of my roommates. We always play by putting down the most hilarious red cards that don't even match the green adjective cards. The word was repulsive. I don't exactly remember what I put down, but I remember seeing that someone had put down the Cary Grant card. Nobody laughed: it was a lame card (definitely not like putting down Helen Keller when the word is visionary). The girl who put it down laughed and said "I have no idea who that is!" I simply couldn't believe it because 1) Cary Grant=HOT and 2) Who doesn't know who Cary Grant is? I can understand people not knowing who Carole Lombard or William Powell are. But Cary Grant! It just goes to show how little my generation cares about classic films and why I feel I need to write this blog....because there are still people out there keeping the memory of Cary Grant alive.
