In Toto Thursday

Cary Grant is the answer to this week's Topless Tuesday. I just started reading a biography of Cary. Written by Marc Eliot, the book sometimes tends to the purple prose. For instance, here's how the author describes Grant's dimpled chin:
... and that remarkable cleft in his chin, whose two smooth and curved bulges resemble nothing so much as a beautiful woman's naked behind while she was on her knees in sexual supplication before the godlike monument of his face.

OK, maybe it's more like blue prose than purple. Despite a few short detours like the above, the bio is a complusive read with a lot of revelations about C.G.
