Grace Kelly

Highest Rated: 99% Rear Window (1954)

Lowest Rated: 73% Weekend of a Champion (1972)

Birthday: Nov 12, 1929

Birthplace: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

In the storied history of the American cinema, few stars shone so brightly for so briefly as Grace Kelly. A working actor for just five short years in the 1950s, known best for her roles as sparkling, whimsical socialites and her work in multiple Alfred Hitchcock thrillers, Kelly outwardly came to embody her name with a seemingly effortless elegance and an almost pristine aesthetic, even as behind the scenes she became notorious for her serial conquests of her leading men and other luminaries. Her talents rivaled her beauty, winning her a best actress Oscar playing against type and her own aristocratic pedigree in "The Country Girl" in 1954. But at the height of her career, Kelly cemented an idyllic legacy by bowing out of Hollywood to marry into European royalty, becoming an American fairy tale incarnate, "Princess Grace."
