Hers was a Hollywood fairy-tale existence few, if anybody, can live: being the child of arguably the most famous movie star in the world – and, certainly, the most dapper, elegant and charming. His name was Cary Grant.
"Okay, I had a crush on Dad. Okay, more than a little crush on Dad," Jennifer Grant, 45, writes in her warm memoir, Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant, which Alfred A. Knopf is publishing May 3. "My other real crushes were Donny Osmond and Jean-Paul Belmondo."
But it was Cary Grant who picked up young Jennifer at school, who read to her, taught her life lessons and saved every photo, souvenir and scrap of paper that the two of them shared for the 20 years he was in her life. He died, at 82, in 1986.

REMEMBERED: Music fans will mark the 10-year anniversary of the suicide of Kurt Cobain, front man for the pioneering grunge band Nirvana, this week. Cobain, who also was married to Courtney Love before his death at age 27, was a catalyst for a new generation of music. Nirvana's second album, "Nevermind," has been hailed as one of the most influential records of the 1990s, once knocking Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" from the top of the charts, the Associated Press reports. The musician is believed to have killed himself at his Seattle home on April 5, 1994, but his body was not found until several days later.
