If It's Tuesday, Then It Must Be Grace Kelly - Her films to TV ratio
We all know that Grace Kelly made a limited number of films before giving up Hollywood to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco. She made 11 films, most of which were critical and commercial successes. Most likely she would have had a long and enduring film career. But I was surprised at the amount of TV work she did before her movie stardom skyrocketed. She appeared in 18 TV series and one tv movie. That's quite impressive considering she only acted from 1950 - 1956. Now for most of these series, she only did one episode but still that is amazing. Some of the series she starred in included: Big Town, The Clock, Somerset Maugham TV Theatre, The Prudential Family Playhouse, CBS Television Workshop, Robert Montgomery Presents, and Actor's Studio (where she played Princess Alexandra, which she would later re-create for the film, The Swan). Just wanted to share this interesting fact about the wonderful Grace.
