Grace Kelly: The American Princess
She came from a wealthy and competitive Philadelphia family, but the life of well-brought up society held little appeal for this acclaimed beauty. She left for New York City and worked hard as a model, stage actor and TV player. And then she was discovered by Hollywood. In less than four years she was acknowledged as one of movie's most sought after stars and an Academy-Award winner, playing opposite some of the greatest leading men of her time. Suddenly, like a modern-day fairy tale, Grace Kelly turned her back on it all - to become Her Serene Highness Princess Grace of Monaco. Now her story is told in home movies and clips from films like HIGH NOON, DIAL M FOR MURDER, REAR WINDOW, TO CATCH A THIEF and HIGH SOCIETY. Also seen, touching and revealing glimpses from the magnificent wedding to the tragic end. Actors Jimmy Stewart, Louis Jourdan, Alec Guinness, Katy Jurado, with directors, producers, friends and Grace's sister, Lizanne, tell of the beautiful star who made the world her stage.
