The Amazing Adventure

This is a curio of sorts. Cary Grant was steadily climbing the Hollywood ladder of stardom but in 1936 he still wasn’t there. That’s the year he returned to his native England to make this film.

As you can see by the opening credits his native land and Empire Films felt Grant was already there. The movie based on a novel by E. Phillips Oppenheim was one of those challenges to the idle rich during the depression. Don’t look down your nose at the rest of us. Get in and help.

Two things are apparent. Cary Grant could act with anybody and the British in general had mastered the art of acting in just about any medium many moons ago.
