The Swan was the last vehicle for Oscar-winner Grace Kelly, it would be her swan song, if you pardon the pun, and it was one of her best. This comedy of manners, about Royals, was set at the end of La Belle Epoque(1870-1914), and it evoked the values of a bygone era in 1956, when it was made, yet it also encompassed everyday values of family, and romance. It also exemplified class distinction, and the beauty of first love. The acting is superb by all, and the direction of Charles Vidor(Gilda), and production by Dore Schary, was magnificent. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout, and most important of all, this movie will bring out the rarest of emotions, it will make you cry, and laugh, at the same time.
