The story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly's crisis of marriage and identity, during a political dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle, and a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960s.
An affectionately nostalgic look at the life and career of American icon Grace Kelly, the product of a Philadelphia family who became a film actress in the early 50s. Her meteoric rise resulted in roles opposite Hollywood's elite leading men and culminated in a 1954 Oscar for "The Country Girl." Whole filming Alfred Hitchcock's thriller "To Catch a Thief" with Cary grant on the Riviera, she met and fell in love with Prince Ranier of Monaco and worldwide icon until her tragic death in 1982.Written by
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.
