Cary Grant's Death


Hi Debbie,

I came across your excellent web site, and it occurred to me I have some
rare Cary Grant photos you may be interested in adding to your online
collection. 

I had tickets to attend "A Conversation With Cary Grant" in Davenport Iowa on Nov. 29, 1986 - the night he died.  We showed up at the theater and were turned away by ushers who announced he had taken ill.  The next morning I opened the newspaper to find "A Legend Dies In Our Arms" as the headline. Cary had died.

The day after he died our local newspaper, the (Davenport Iowa) Quad City
Times, published the very last pictures ever taken of Cary, including two
photos of him on a stretcher being wheeled out of the lobby of the hotel he
was staying at and into an ambulance.  I have never seen these photos
published anywhere else, so they may be a valuable addition to your site.

I have scanned these items and attach them here as .jpg items.  Feel free to
put them on your web site or circulate them however you wish; I'm happy to
share them with other fans of Cary.

Best wishes,
Alan Light
