Actress Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly biography

Grace Kelly (Grace Patricia Kelly) was born November 12, 1929, Philadelphia, USA.

She was an American actress who became the Princess of Monaco.

Although her film career lasted only five years and included 11 films, she became one of the biggest stars of the 1950s, and when, at the premiere of her last film, High Society (1956), she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco, melting reality and the fairy tale world of the film together.

With her aristocratic appearance, Grace Kelly represented an alternative to the sex symbols of the period.

The mixture of outer coolness and inner glow first appeared in Mogambo (1953) and was particularly exploited by Alfred Hitchcock in Rear Window (1954) and To Catch a Thief (1955).

Grace Kelly was awarded an Oscar for The Country Girl (1955). She died on September 14, 1982 in a car accident near her home and was buried in the cathedral in Monaco.

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of her death, Monaco issued a 2-euro coin with her portrait on the reverse.

Died September 14, 1982, Monte Carlo, Monaco.
