In quite good condition, bookshop stamp on title page, all pages clean.

Princess Grace - the life story of Grace Kelly, the film star beauty who abandoned her Hollywood career to marry Prince Rainer of Monaco.

To the world it was a sugar-spun fairytale of the film star who married a prince and would live happily ever after in his castle. However, Princess Grace's tragic and untimely death on 14 September,1982 robbed the Principality of its best loved personality and left the world in mourning. Born to a wealthy Philadelphia family, Grace Patricia Kelly grew up to become an actress of remarkable beauty, style and talent. Her film roles included High Noon, Dial M for Murder, To Catch a Thief, High Society and The Country Girl, for which she won an Oscar, and her co-stars were such names as Clark Gable, Gary Cooper, Bing Crosby, James Stewart and Frank Sinatra. In 1956 she starred opposite Alec Guinness in The Swan which cast her as a beautiful commoner who married the prince of a fairytale kingdom. Ironically, five days after the film opened, Grace Kelly left for Monaco to marry Prince Rainier - a marriage which shocked many but also touched the hearts of millions. Gwen Robyns spent many months talking to members of the family and to people who knew Grace in her early years as an actress.

"From Film Star to Princess, that must be the American dream, but this book tells the true and ultimately sad story of one of the most beautiful starlets of the movie age.
This unique and fascinating biography bears out the words spoken by Ronald Reagan after her tragic death: Princess Grace was deeply loved by the people of Monaco because she was a gentle and compassionate lady who had a deep and abiding affection for her adopted country and people. A true fairy tale of the film star who married a prince. A very enjoyable read." ~Amazon
