Cary: a tune

Cary Can’t Carry a Tune from David Cairns on Vimeo.

This nameless horror is from KISS AND MAKE-UP (the pun on cosmetics isn’t really a winner: try saying it out loud). So far as I’m aware, Cary Grant was never called upon to serve as any kind of song delivery mechanism in any other movie in the following thirty-two years of his career, and this is why.

Possibly you may find this proof that Cary wasn’t 100% perfect and godlike in every way reassuring, in which case suffering through his “recital” will do you some good. Otherwise, you may prefer to simply mute the audio, gaze at his image, and attempt to sharpen a pencil in your ear, which will give you much the same effect but to a lesser extent.
