Fairy tale in Monaco
23 January 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This made for TV movie was shown recently on cable. Not having seen it before, it proved to be an interesting way to learn a bit more about an American icon who went to live a fairy tale life in a foreign country as the princess of Monaco, that tiny place in the South of France.

Directed by Anthony Page, the story presents the life of Grace Kelly, a woman born of well to do parents from Philadelphia, who made a name for herself as one of the most brilliant actresses working in Hollywood films in the fifties. Not only was she a ravishing beauty, but she projected such a regal figure that becoming a princess seems to have been a natural role for her.

The movie presents several aspects of Grace Kelly's life and her relationship with the formidable Jack Kelly, her father. The romance between her and Rainier of Monaco is something out of a romance novel, yet, they appeared much in love when they got married. The interesting thing about the last part of the film is that newsreel material was incorporated into the film making if feel real.

The performances are good. Cheryl Ladd does an amazing job under Mr. Page's sure hand. Lloyd Bridges played Jack Kelly well. Ian McShane is seen as Prince Rainier. Others in the cast include Diane Ladd, Alejandro Rey, William Schallert, and David Paymer, among others.

The film serves as a reminder that perhaps yes, fairy tales can come true.
