Grace Patricia Kelly was
born on November 12, 1929 in Philadelphia... Her nickname
was "Graciebird" or "Gracie."
1954 was a terrific year
for her career. Her portrayal of Lisa Fremont in Alfred
Hitchcock’s REAR WINDOW, playing James Stewart’s bold
girl friend, really showcased her talent and made her
a huge star.
Grace Kelly's last film was made in
1956, a musical remake of "The Philadelphia Story",
called HIGH SOCIETY.
She retired from films shortly
thereafter when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco. She
lived the rest of her life in Monaco with her family.
Grace died in a tragic road accident in Sept. of 1982,
just 52 years old.
