The filly from Philly

29 years ago today we lost a screen icon.

Grace Kelly was born to become a Hitchcock blond and she did that 3x over.

Along the way she garnered an Oscar, had an Hermes bag named after her and married a prince. She starred opposite Gary Cooper, Clark Gable and Bing Crosby but it was her pairing with Cary Grant that saw her dazzle. In "To Catch a Thief" she lit up the french riviera in technicolor delight. She did all of this by the tender age of 27 and then said adieu to cinema forever. Grace Kelly abandoned Hollywood for the Principality of Monaco and the dashing young Prince Rainier. Luckily for us she lives on in celluloid!
