Those of you who know me are probably familiar with my love for classic cinema and in particular, my love for Cary Grant.
Today's post is just a fun little fact about Cary Grant and his fellow acting contemporary, Clark Gable.
As you may have noticed the two, apart from sharing similar careers, also shared the same initials and the pair made it a tradition during their time to meet up after the Christmas gift giving period with any monogrammed gifts they had received and pick and choose and swap them around according to their individual tastes.
I'm not sure how long this tradition lasted but it was definitely a favourite anecdote of theirs to pull out during interviews in their later years. I for one can see why.
