“The Only Actor I Ever Loved”: The Personal and Professional Relationship of Alfred Hitchcock and Cary Grant

Alfred Hitchcock and Cary Grant must have seemed like unlikely collaborators when they first met in 1939, but the macabre ‘master of suspense’ and the debonair star of screwball comedies enriched each other’s work immeasurably.

They also became close friends and, late in his life, Hitchcock confided to a friend that Grant was “the only actor I ever loved”.

Drawing on the personal papers of both the star and the director, this illustrated talk explores the remarkable personal and professional relationship that endured for decades and resulted in four classic films: Suspicion (1941), Notorious (1946), To Catch a Thief (1955) and North by Northwest (1959).

About the speaker:

Mark Glancy is Reader in Film at Queen Mary University of London. His most recent book is Cary Grant: The Making of a Hollywood Legend (Oxford University Press, 2020).
