Classic Movie Goddess Of The Month - Grace Kelly Part 3

Here are the essential films of Grace Kelly that you have to see. It's the films where she gets to shine and you see why she is a classic movie goddess.

REAR WINDOW (1954) Without a doubt my favorite Grace film in which she gives a wonderful performance as Lisa Fremont, fashion-model socialite to James Stewart's wheelchair bound photographer in one of Hitchcock's best films ever. Grace is perfect as Lisa and makes her character come alive every time she is onscreen.

TO CATCH A THIEF (1955) Another Hitchcock film and another solid performance by Grace as Frances, a young woman who falls in love with retired thief Cary Grant. Good stuff.

HIGH NOON (1952) Holding her own against Gary Cooper as his Quaker bride Amy in this classic western. One of Grace's early film performances that rank up there with her very best.

DIAL M FOR MURDER (1954) Grace really did her best work when teamed with Hitchcock as she did for a third time for this riveting thriller.

THE COUNTRY GIRL (1954) For her only Academy Award came this strong performance as the wife of alcoholic Bing Crosby. Grace is good here but I happen to think her performance in Window is her best work.
