In the 1980s Cary Grant went touring the country partaking in a question and answer session with audiences called ‘A Conversation With Cary Grant.’  Here are some questions that Cary answered throughout the tour:

DID YOU CREATE THAT SUAVE, SOPHISTICATED IMAGE, OR IS IT REALLY YOU?
CG:  Of course, it’s me!
COULD YOU PLEASE TAKE OFF YOUR GLASSES?
CG:  He reached up to his face with both hands, removed his black-framed glasses, and after the slightest, perfectly timed pause, he looked back at the woman and said, ‘Is there anything else you’d like me to take off?’
THE DICTIONARY WILL SOMEDAY REDEFINE THE WORD ‘CHARISMA’ WITH THE WORDS ‘CARY GRANT.’
CG:  I’m glad they’re waiting.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE FOR DINNER IF WE WERE MARRIED?
CG:  The way you say that, I’d probably skip dinner.
HOW DOES ONE ACHIEVE SUCCESS?
CG:  Diligence, perseverance, and enjoying what you do.
DID YOU LEARN TO JUGGLE IN VAUDEVILLE?
CG:  Only a few morals.
THIS IS A DREAM COME TRUE.
CG:  Do you want to pinch me?
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR PET PEEVES?
CG:  People who call me ‘Car’ denoting familiarity.  Phrases like ‘She’s a living doll,’  ‘Have a good day,’  ‘Enjoy,’ or mispronounced words like, ‘otamobile’ for ‘automobile,’ tweny’ for ‘twenty,’ ‘vichysoi’ for vichyssoise,’ or misused words like ‘anxious’ for ‘eager,’  ‘infer’ for ‘imply,’ or people who say to me, ‘You know, you know, you know,’ when I don’t know!

Sliver Tetradrachm with head of Alexander the Great, dating back to 297-281 BCE. This coin conveys Alexander’s superhuman status by endowing him with the ram’s horn of the god Zues-Ammon. The Macedonian king ruled Babylon from 331 BCE until his death in that same city in 323 BCE. Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA.
