”Gracie” Grace Patricia Kelly was an American actress and Princess consort of Monaco. She was born November 12, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to John and Margaret Kelly. John B. Kelly was a wealthy contractor. At a young age, Grace decided she wanted to become an actress, and studied acting (primarily theater) at New York City’s American Academy of Dramatic Art and worked as a stage actress and model before moving to Hollywood. When in New York, Grace promoted Old Gold cigarettes and appeared on the covers of magazines such as “Cosmopolitan” and “Redbook”.
Kelly was always a stunning beauty, even as an infant. After graduating from high school in 1947, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. She supported herself through modeling and was in great demand as a cover girl. In 1950, Grace Kelly made her feature film debut in a movie called Fourteen Hours. Her next film, High Noon (1952), Mogambo (1953), Dial M for Murder, (1954), Rear Window (1954), The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954). That same year, Kelly appeared with Bing Crosby in Country Girl, the film that earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress. In 1955, Kelly starred in Green Fire, followed by To Catch a Thief. In 1956, she starred in a musical adaptation of Philadelphia Story called High Society, with Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. The final film of her brief but intense career, The Swan, was released in 1956. She co-starred with Alec Guinness and received top billing for the first and only time in her career. During the years when Kelly was under contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, she shared her time between the incessant demands of Hollywood and her chosen home in New York City, where she aspired to find work on the Broadway stage.
Later that year, she married Prince Rainier Grimaldi III of Monaco to become Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco. The wedding proved one of the most lavish and reported events of the decade. Soon after, Grace announced her retirement from films. She had three children: Princess Caroline, Prince Albert, and Princess Stéphanie.
Princess Grace died unexpectedly from injuries incurred at the wheel of her own car, a Rover 3500, when it careened from a cliff and crashed 150 feet down the mountainside. The accident occurred at the Grimaldi’s private retreat at Roc Agel. Princess Grace remained unconscious for two days before she died in Monte Carlo on September 14, 1982, following the removal of life-support apparatus. Later reports confirmed that she suffered a stroke at the time of the crash and would have been paralyzed on one side had she survived. Monaco and the Grimaldi family mourned the loss of Princess Grace, and Rainier never remarried. Her memory continues to capture and inspire the public imagination, even though her fairy tale masked many struggles and concluded in tragedy.
Some of Grace Kelly’s Quotes: “Hollywood amuses me. Holier-than-thou for the public and unholier-than-the-devil in reality.”
