TCM Star of the Month Alert

GraceKellySet your DVRs. During the month of November, TCM’s Star of the Month is none other than Grace Kelly. Although her film career was remarkably short:

Year Title
1951 Fourteen Hours
1952 High Noon
1953 Mogambo
1954 Dial M for Murder
Rear Window
The Country Girl
Green Fire
The Bridges at Toko-Riki
1955 To Catch a Thief
1956 The Swan
High Society

Almost all of her performances are memorable. Her collaboration with Hitchcock in three of films put her in select company for actors who had repeat performances in his film (Grant, Stewart, Bergman, Fontaine, Peck to name a few).

Of course a great part of hear legacy has to do with her leaving Hollywood to marry Prince Rainier and preside over the principality of Monaco until her untimely death in 1982.

I feel so ignorant

I cannot believe I call myself a classic movie fan and did not realize how celebrated the career of Leslie Caron was. I had heard of her in films like Gigi and Father Goose. I also knew that she was a former ballet dancer, but that was about it. Thank goodness for TCM’s month long tribute to her. Tonight I am DVR-ing The L Shaped Room. I will post my reaction here when I watch it in its entirety. Stay Tuned …..
