Actually it was Cary Grant, Dad, Red Skelton and Richard Widmark who were talking about forming a partnership to invest in a hotel in Acapulco, Mexico in the mid-1940s!

I don’t remember anything about this (sure wish it had happened as Grant and Widmark were extraordinary businessmen!) but a friend of mine, who is a consultant on getting business permits, came across some documents regarding this strange partnership. She went to Cary Grant’s Wikipedia page and, sure enough, it’s listed under Business Interests. She contacted me and I couldn’t wait to share the information WITH YOU!

I would imagine that Dad’s interest was initially in having a place to stay when he was in Mexico fishing! Sure wish that the investment had materialized!!!

I love finding out new things about my parents. Remember you can contact me by email at cheryl@cherylrogers.com.
