The Films of Cary Grant, Ranked

Yes, I have seen all of these, though for some (like Howards of Virginia) it's probably been a decade or so.

These are ranked on how much I liked the specific film, not Grant's performances. I think we can agree he started kind of raw and charming, evolved into a more accomplished performer who sometimes fell back on a certain series of tics, and eventually pretty much just went loud unless his director chose to reign him in. Bless 'im.
