TCM December 2023 Star of the Month Cary Grant

Cary Grant numbers among the biggest movie stars of all time. Indeed, in AFI's 1999 list 100 Years..100 Stars, Cary Grant ranked second to only Humphrey Bogart as the greatest male star. He had a long career, from working in vaudeville in the 1920s to his final screen credit, Walk, Don't Run, in 1966. Over the years he appeared in a number of legendary movies, including Bring Up Baby (1938), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), North by Northwest (1959), and Charade (1963). Even today people who have never seen a classic movie in their lives recognize his name.

It should be no surprise that Cary Grant is Turner Classic Movies' Star of the Month for December 2023. Every Friday night TCM will be showing several of his movies. What is more, on December 22 2023, Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon's daughter Jennifer Grant will co-host a night of Mr. Grant's movies with TCM host Dave Karger. She will share her own insights into her father's career, as well as discuss the new Britbox original series Archie, based on her father's life, on which she was an executive producer.

I thought Jennifer Grant's mother was Dyan Cannon... Or am I mistaken? Or did I not understand your text?
