Currently Turner Classic Movies’ star of the month, Cary Grant was a towering superstar of immense charm, but he’d be the first to admit, as he does in this clichéd biographical miniseries, “I made him up—the perfect man—in order to survive.” Jason Isaacs (Star Trek: Discovery) plays the adult version of the film star, born as Archie Leach in Bristol, England, with a sad childhood worthy of Dickens. Once he arrives in the U.S. with a vaudeville acrobatic troupe, handsome and ambitious Archie/Cary soon finds his ways into the movies. Archie toggles between his early days and his later career in the 1960s, when he cashes in on his celebrity with personal appearances while wooing his future fourth wife Dyan Cannon (Laura Aikman), who doesn’t quite know what to make of a guy who likes eating burgers in bed. (Not to be confused with Netflix’s The Archies, also streaming today, a Bollywood-style musical comedy from India adapting the famous comic-book characters.)
