Grace Kelly's film career spanned just five years and 14 movies, yet her legacy is indelible. Thirty years after her death (on Sept. 14, 1982) and 56 years after she made her last movie, the actress-turned-princess remains a trendsetter for her beauty, style and poise, and her on-screen performances continue to mesmerize with their unique blend of ice and fire. The details of Kelly's biography remain familiar, as they dovetail so neatly with many of the roles she played. Born in 1929, she grew up a Philadelphia socialite, but rather than live the debutante life, she moved to New York, where she became a model, a stage actress and a TV actress. Her acting icon was Ingrid Bergman, a star with a similar mix of icily perfect composure and radiant sensuality. When Kelly was 21, in 1951, she moved to Hollywood and, within months, scored her first lead role, as Gary Cooper's prim, pacifist bride »

Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" What's It About? A stuffy fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is sent on the bizarre mission to bring the sport of fly-fishing to Yemen, all paid for by a sheik. See It Because: This is about as far from your typical rom-com as you can get. A pleasant surprise from beginning to end, the movie is funny, charming and not derivative at all.

Purists will cry foul but maybe it is not such a bad idea to revisit some of Hitch’s back catalogue, if done right. However, as history has shown, Hollywood tends to get Hitch wrong. Among the bad Hitchcock remakes are Gus Van Sant’s pointless carbon copy of Psycho (1998) and the critically maligned Dial M for Murder (1954) remake, A Perfect Murder (1998). Not to mention the films that are directly influenced by Hitchcock, or in most cases just rip him off. To this list you can add Charade (1963), Basic Instinct (1992), Disturbia (2007) and almost all of Brian De Palma’s early psychological thrillers.
Nonetheless there is a case for remakes in general. After all, a bad movie will be bad no matter if it »
