Regal, elegant, beautiful, grace… What better name as she was the epitome of grace on the screen and in real life. Grace Kelly was the most powerful female in Hollywood in the 1950’s, next to Elizabeth Taylor. She was wanted by every director and producer. From 1950 to 1956 when she wed Prince Rainer of Monaco and retired from Hollywood, she starred in 11 Motion Pictures, and numerous television programs. She was Alfred Hitchcock’s favorite female leading lady.
After only 4 years in the big screen, Grace walked away as the Academy’s Best Actress for her role in Country Girl, beating out big names such as Jane Wyman, Audrey Hepburn, Dorothy Dandridge and Judy Garland.
My favorite Grace Kelly role was Dial M for Murder. She was just spectacular.
Grace left Hollywood royalty for royalty in 1956, but her name, her talent, her grace lives on.
