Cary Grant was the epitome of Hollywood glamour in the 1930s and ‘40s, but off-screen, his personal life was less than perfect. For years, he struggled with psychological demons, until he found his salvation in the late 1950s with LSD. Under the supervision of a therapist—while grappling with several failed marriages and the fact that his mother had abandoned him as a child—Grant began using the drug. “I was literally reborn,” he told the Saturday Evening Post in 1978. “I learned that I could control my life, that I am not a hapless victim. I was making the mistake of thinking each of my wives was my mother.” Although Grant went on to divorce two more times after treatment, he continued to swear by the drug for therapeutic purposes.
