becoming a real princess

Author: petershelleyau from Sydney, Australia
26 March 2004

This Hollywood Legends documentary features home movies, stills, film clips, modeling ads and commercials, and lots of newsreels of Grace Kelly's engagement, marriage, and life and death in Monaco after she left Hollywood.

The possibility of her return to make Marnie is mentioned, as is footage from the 1954 Academy Awards where she was given the Best Actress Oscar, though not the controversy over her being chosen over Judy Garland that year. We see footage from a live TV show The Rich Boy, a clip from the documentary The Children of Theater Street, hear her speaking French, and are told of a running practical joke she had over a tomahawk with Alec Guinness. The coverage of her death is relatively brief.

What is pointed out is how short her Hollywood career was, how the poise she had from her wealthy background helped her cope with the demands made on her playing The Princess, and it is claimed that the playfulness she exhibited in High Society, her last film, was due to the fact that she knew it was her last because she was engaged.
