Thank-you, Starliteyes.

Which director who worked with Cary Grant said of him:

 

"Two of the greatest performances ever given by an actor were Cary's in His Girl Friday and The Philadelphia Story.  Cary is not really appreciated for the remarkable actor that he was. He's thought of as a man who achieved a certain elegance and savoir faire. But in truth he was a fantastic actor."

 

Note: This director did not direct him in either of the above films.

LOL  That was a clever hint, Paul.  I think it's Cyd Charisse, who was talking about Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly.
