Movie of the Day

The Howards of Virginia

Cary Grant thought he was miscast in this film about colonial Virginia, and I am inclined to agree with him. It is strange to see the actor, who looked better in a pinstripe suit than any other man who ever appeared on screen, stomping around the woods in buckskins. Although he didn’t have any idea why he was in this film, being a consummate professional, Grant did the best he could, and more or less pulls off his portrayal of an impassioned separatist during the American Revolutionary War with a father-in-law who is a fierce loyalist.
