Princess Beatrice's days of enjoying the regal life are numbered unless her only daughter, Princess Alexandra, makes a good impression on a distant cousin when he pays a surprise visit to their palace. Prince Albert has searched all over Europe for a bride and he's bored by the whole courtship routine. He is more interested in the estate's dairy than Alexandra's rose garden. And then he starts playing football with the tutor and Alexandra's brothers. Invite the tutor to the ball that night and watch how gracefully Alexandra dances with him. Written by

This is Alec Guinness's best romantic movie. "The Swan" is about two guys in love with a princess. Prince Albert (Alec Guinness) battles with the tutor (Louis Jourdan) for Princess Alexandra's (Grace Kelly) affections. All three are beautiful and perfect in their roles.
The supporting cast is great and the movie looks beautiful in color. It is a lovely story that will always put you in a good mood. You get the feeling the cast liked each other. This was Princess Grace's final movie before she married Prince Rainier. What is nice, is that Princess Grace kept her friendship with Mr. Guinness until the end of her life.
