Publisher's Summary

Thirty years ago, Grace Kelly was tragically killed when her vehicle tumbled 40 meters from the serpentine roads of Monaco. She has since become a myth, a style icon existing between the glamour of Hollywood and the royalty of Monaco. As Hitchcock’s favorite actress to work with, Kelly acted in classic films including Rear Window and To Catch a Thief, opposite actors such as Frank Sinatra and Cary Grant. Yet her private life remained in the shadows. Her marriage to Prince Rainier III was not anchored by love, and her life on the Riviera was more akin to a golden cage. She was an individual torn between illusion and reality, simultaneously idolized by millions.

This comprehensive biography draws from previously unreleased photographs and documents from the Grimaldi family archive and, for the first time, access to the letters between Kelly and Hitchcock. It is also based on interviews with Kelly’s companions and relatives, including an exclusive interview with Prince Albert II of Monaco.

    THE WAY THEY TALKED ABOUT HER FATHER AND HOW SHE TRIED TO PLEASE HIM, AND HOW IT REFLECTED THROUGHOUT HER LIFE.

    HE TREATED THE SUBJECT (GRACE) WITH RESPECT THROUGHOUT THE BOOK.

    "Sugar coated"
    Would you try another book written by Thilo Wydra and Rachel Hildebrandt (translator) or narrated by Jonathan Yen?

    Some interesting stories and insight , gives a good background to the emergence of grace Kelly and perhaps some explanation for the person she became and decisions she made. Thought though that the info on her family of origin and subsequent info provided by interviews with her family today were very sugar coated to say the least and found that disappointing.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thilo Wydra and Rachel Hildebrandt (translator) again?

    Perhaps
