fitting and thorough

Turner Classic Movie's documentary "Cary Grant: A Class Apart" is a well-researched and entertaining peek inside the life of one of the most important figures in all of cinema, the man formerly known as Archie Leach. The documentary serves as a tribute to the screen actor as scenes, images, and commentary are given to many of Grant's seventy-two screen appearances, but it also uncovers stories and shares insight into his private life through his memoirs and interviews with his friends and former wives. It doesn't only shine with that untarnished glow many life retrospectives like to offer to a culture's favorite personalities, but shares an intimacy not visible through his impressive yet controlled film persona.
