Nicole Kidman's performance as actress-turned-royal Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco prompted plenty of attention.

In this clip from the film, Kidman's Grace turns down an approach from Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) to return to the silver screen to play the title role of Margaret 'Marnie' Edgar.

Kelly's rejection meant that Hitchcock briefly shelved the project to work on The Birds, where he gave Tippi Hedren her screen debut

When he returned to Marnie a year later, he opted to keep his leading blonde, who starred opposite "some Scottish fellow" that Cubby Broccoli was raving about.
