Grace Kelly: The American Princess (1987)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another very good and highly entertaining documentary with this one focusing on the life and career of Grace Kelly who would end up winning an Oscar, taking Hollywood by storm and becoming a real life Princess. James Stewart, Louis Jourdan, Katy Jurado, Stanley Kramer, Delbert Mann and many others are on hand offering up their thoughts on Kelly as an actress and how she handled the pressure of being a Princess.

If you're a fan of Kelly then you should really enjoy this documentary as it contains clips from her movies, many newsreels as well as interviews with those who knew her the best. There's a lot of great footage on display here but the highlight are certainly the interviews and especially those with Stewart and Kramer.
