  1. As a contribution to Cary Grant, I wanted to mention his friendship with his Dentist, my father, Dr. John J. Jaffin. My Dad was called "The Dentist to Broadway", who grew up with Cary when he came to the States. I was lucky enough to meet and eat lunch with him at the Plaza Hotel. My Dad had talked about Cary coming in from California to have his teeth done for the longest time. Each time, my Mother was invited, until after the fifth time, she told my Dad to take the kids to the city that Saturday. Well, Cary called my Dad and we met him at The Plaza Hotel. It was like being in one of his movies. We were seated already and waiting for Cary. My Dad was talking about what a great friend he was, but when Cary came by the table, he walked right by my father. Just as my Dad's jaw dropped in disappointment, Cary whipped around and said "my dear Doctor". After the lunch we said goodbye and that was that. But two weeks later, Cary sent both my brother and myself autographed and personalized pictures along with a letter telling us what a good friend our Dad had been to him. It is a time I will never forget.
