Between the years of 1950-1956 - The delicately pretty, Grace Kelly (who became a literal fashion icon) was, undeniably, one of Hollywood's most bankable actresses, bar none.

During her rather brief film career she became one of director, Alfred Hitchcock's favourite leading ladies, as he starred her in 2 of his most famous films of the time - "Dial M For Murder" and "Rear Window".

Meticulously written by British author, Wendy Leigh - "True Grace" takes an in-depth, eye-opening look behind the well-manicured facade of Grace Kelly's public persona to reveal a very frustrated and lonely woman who resigned herself (for the remainder of her life) to a most unsatisfying marriage to Prince Rainier (of Monaco).

Sad to say - On September 14, 1982 - Grace Kelly (52 at the time) suffered a stroke while driving back to Monaco and subsequently died in the crash that followed.
