I’m one of those Christmas FANATICS that actually shops and plans for Christmas year round. Seriously, I keep totes to put great things I see and buy throughout the year for loved ones. When you have a large family, it’s really the only shot you have… shop early and shop often!
I even plan and practice special cookies, pies, cakes, and side dishes throughout the year for both Christmas and Thanksgiving. My family hasn’t complained about this fetish once.
Beginning today, I’ll be adding more and more “gift ideas for Old Hollywood fans” on the blog. I figured a wonderful place to begin is with one of everyone’s favorite actors, Cary Grant. What better gift for a lover of old movies than a Cary Grant collection?!
This DVD Box Set is the Cary Grant: The Vault Collection (Amazon link). It includes 18 of his wonderful early films, including..
- His feature film debut, This Is the Night (1932)
- Devil and the Deep (1932)
- Blonde Venus (1932)
- Hot Saturday (1932)
- Madame Butterfly (1932)
- She Done Him Wrong (1933)
- The Woman Accused (1933)
- The Eagle and the Hawk (1933)
- Gambling Ship (1933)
- I’m No Angel (1933)
- Thirty Day Princess (1934)
- Kiss and Make-Up (1934)
- Ladies Should Listen (1934)
- Enter Madame! (1935)
- Wings in the Dark (1935)
- The Last Outpost (1935)
- Big Brown Eyes (1936)
- Wedding Present (1936)
The thing I love so much about this collection is the fact that these are films hardly ever (if ever!) shown on television. They’re also films that are downright impossible to find on their own. The only way to own rare movies like these are usually ONLY when you buy them in a collection. I’ve run into this so many times when building my own private dvd collections of my favorites (including Cary Grant). This collection is absolute gold for old movie fans – especially those of us who love Cary Grant!
