to quote Ann Landers, who always spelled it with a k.

The correct answer is "Old Cary Grant fine, how you?" The story comes from the late H. Allen Smith, IIRC who interviewed Cary Grant in the early 1960's. His editor sent him a telegram with the message "How Old Cary Grant?" Smith showed it to Grant who sent the reply "Old Cary Grant Fine, How You?" back.
