Storyline

The Principality of Monaco, probably the smallest sovereign state in all the world, is home to 4,000 Monegasques and 16,000 other foreign nationals. With her marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco, Grace Kelly will not only become the Princess of Monaco, but will also acquire a multitude of other royal titles matching those of her husband. The wedding itself is only one part of the event's festivities, which is to be a celebration of arts, culture and nationalism in honor of the royal couple. The planning and execution must be perfect in the eyes of the Monegasques. The flowers adorning the celebration will include a newly bred carnation called the Princess Grace. The day before the wedding, the bride arrives in Monaco aboard the SS Constitution, which is met by the Prince aboard his yacht. In port, they are met by a throng of well wishing onlookers. A smaller civil ceremony, which follows strict protocols of the royal house and which is held at the Royal Palace, is completed on April ... Written by Huggo

Purple Prose and an Air of Depressed Monarchism
15 November 2004 | by (Minneapolis, Mn) – See all my reviews

Just caught this as part of a TCM tribute to Grace's career. Not much to say about it. There are some beautiful shots of the water, lots of big cars and boats, a rather nice visit to the ballet, and a good look at the outside and inside of the palace. It is all interspersed with some of the most fawning purple prose this side of Jackie Collins, and

  • all in all - a generously depressed air of decayed monarchy. We are


led to believe (by the hard working hagiographer/narrator) that this all really means something, that it is a sunny symbol of the best life has to offer, that it is a manifestation of pure happiness in the form of a quite pretty but slightly gelid American princess. It doesn't ring true for one moment, but the disconnect found there is part of the reason it's bearable at all. Everybody appears to be working far too hard to keep up appearances, and all human vitality appears to have leaked out through the scullery doors. One hopes she was happy, but I read she wasn't particularly. Prince Rainier always seemed like a pill to me.
