On November 12, 1929, Grace Patricia Kelly was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to wealthy parents. Her girlhood was uneventful for the most part, but one of the things she desired was to become an actress which she had decided on at an early age. After her high school graduation in 1947, Grace struck out on her own, heading to New York's bright lights to try her luck there. Grace worked some as a model and made her debut on Broadway in 1949.
She became Princess of Monaco by marrying Prince Rainier III in April 1956.
Kelly retired from acting at the age of 26 to marry Rainier, and began her duties as Princess of Monaco. It is well known that Hitchcock was hoping she would appear in more of his films which required an "icy blonde" lead actress, but he was unable to coax her out of retirement
She hoped to return to acting in Alfred Hitchcock's Marnie (1964), but the people of Monaco did not want their princess playing a thief and romancing Sean Connery.
On September 14, 1982, Grace was killed in an automobile accident in her adoptive home country. She was just 52 years old.
She was allegedly romantically involved with all of her leading men apart from James Stewart. She was also linked to Marlon Brando, David Niven and Jean-Pierre Aumont.
Some Grace Kelly Quotes:
"Hollywood amuses me. Holier-than-thou for the public and unholier-than-the-devil in reality."
"Mr. Hitchcock taught me everything about cinema. It was thanks to him that I understood that murder scenes should be shot like love scenes and love scenes like murder scenes."
"When I married Prince Rainier, I married the man and not what he represented or what he was. I fell in love with him without giving a thought to anything else."
