Unfortunately, I don't think it was ever captured in color. The only pics I have seen of it are B&W.

Alexandria: Such beautiful pictures montecarlo and Dennism! Grace always looked so ravishing and serene no matter what the circumstance or how casual she was dressed.

Monte Carlo: You're welcome Alexandria! Grace was and still is the epitome of beauty and elegance. I miss her so much. I hope I have a daughter so that I can name her after Gracie.

Paul Westran: When Stars Collide

In the opinion of many of her industry contemporaries and at least three royal princes , one of the most beautiful actresses to appear on the silver screen was Grace Kelly. Her wholesome image, portrayed at the behest of the all-powerful and politically swayed studio system, belied a very sexually oriented person, fond of men and eager for affairs. Grace was in love once in her young life, with a high school sweetheart, Harper Davis. They were an item in 1944 before he left for wartime service. Grace's father forced her to break it off before he embarked. When Harper returned he developed multiple sclerosis, dying young in 1953.

When asked by her fiancé Prince Rainier if she had ever been in love before she responded by telling him: "Yes. I was in love with Harper Davis. He died."

She allegedly lost her virginity to a friend's husband. The story goes she was visiting a friend who wasn't home. She was made welcome by the friend's husband and they decided to sleep together. This was before she enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in October 1947. She claimed later to have engineered the liaison, not wishing to arrive at college inexperienced in the ways of love. Later when her prospective marriage to Prince Ranier required her to be virgo intacta she was examined by the Royal Monegasque surgeon and allegedly claimed her hymen had been broken while playing hockey at school.

Grace Kelly and Alexander D'Arcy: A month long fling with an established actor who was over twenty years older than her was one of the first of Grace Kelly's affairs. He was quite the gentleman and only touched her knee in the taxi they were sharing after a night out when she launched herself at him taking him by surprise.

Grace Kelly and Don Richardson: In 1948 Grace started an affair with one of her tutors at the Academy. Don Richardson was eleven years her senior. He had rescued her from the class bully then taken her out for tea to comfort her without first checking in his wallet. He realised he did not have enough cash so they dropped by his flat. He got the fire going and went to make coffee. On his return he found Grace in bed waiting for him. Richardson was stunned. He describes Kelly's body as "stunning"; "like something sculptured by Rodin."

There was no introduction, no flirtation, no prelude, nothing. Grace went straight to the main event. Kelly and Richardson continued to see each other for a number of years until Richardson recognised a bracelet that Prince Aly Khan presented to those women who had shared his bed. (He would give a cigarette case with a single emerald to those he had dinner with).

He dropped the jewellery into Grace's fish tank and left.

Grace Kelly and Prince Aly Khan: Grace is said to have turned down a marriage proposal from this prince. She did however receive a bracelet from him. This is enough to convince some of their intimate relationship.

Grace Kelly and Gene Lyons: The summer of 1951 saw Grace falling in love with Gene Lyons, again an older, theatrical type. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Lyons was a shy introverted individual when not on stage, sensitive, and passionate about acting and Grace saw in him someone with whom she could identify and with whom she wanted to both love and work with.

Gene Lyons stimulated Grace Kelly in that he again took on the role of her mentor that Richardson had filled, inspiring her and making her want to achieve success and fame with him.

They made a TV drama together, The Rich Boy, the story of a woman who leaves her lover dues to his drinking. This reflected the fate of their relationship. The sensitive Lyons took to the bottle, and this caused their relationship to draw to a premature conclusion.

Their relationship continued into mid-1952. James Spada remarks that she realised his problems were so deep-seated, she would never be able to "reform" him . So although they remained an "item", their days together were numbered simply because the very selective and ambitious Grace no longer thought of him as a potential marriage partner.

Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper: Grace's first big screen role was in the classic High Noon with Gary Cooper. Although much older than her, he had always had the reputation of a stud. In fact, silent screen siren Clara Bow had given him the nickname Studs in the 1920's.

Grace Kelly and Clark Gable: Gable did not want a relationship with Kelly and he went out of his way to avoid her after they parted, but while they were in Africa, Grace was the only white woman for hundreds of miles not married to Frank Sinatra (Ava Gardner was there too) and so they began sleeping together.

Grace Kelly and Jean-Pierre Aumont: After a formal start while filming a TV drama in which Grace insisted on calling him Mr Aumont, recently widowed French actor Jean-Pierre Aumont became Grace's lover. She showed him the sights of New York and he fell in love with her.

"I loved her because she was so lovely", was Aumont's simple summation of her allure.

Aumont was spotted kissing Grace at the 1955 Cannes film festival, so their relationship was quite friendly even two years later.

Grace Kelly and Ray Milland: When Hollywood Confidential found out about Grace Kelly and Ray Milland it presented Milland with some problems. They were filming Dial M for Murder and, although Milland's thirty year marriage had weathered one or two storms in the past, it had never had to do so in public. He split with his wife after she found out he was not really going on a business trip, but was in fact seen boarding a plane with Grace Kelly. He fell hopelessly in love with Grace and would have left his wife for her but for the fact that everything he owned was in his wife's name and so he begrudgingly went back home.

Grace Kelly and Oleg Cassini: Grace was with Jean-Pierre Aumont, trying to get over the loss of Ray Milland when she met Oleg Cassini. Cassini had recently seen Grace Kelly in the film Mogambo and was already besotted when he spied her in a restaurant in New York. She was with Aumont whom Oleg Cassini already knew (they had competed for the love of Gene Tierney in the past). Cassini was something of a Casanova, an "accomplished seducer" he set his sights on winning Grace's heart and did so in typical fashion. "It was to be the greatest, most exhilarating campaign of my life." He remarked later.

Cassini set about developing a plan of seduction which involved sending a dozen red roses to Grace's home for ten days, he did not sign the card, instead he wrote 'from the friendly florist' on the tenth day he called her saying he was the friendly florist. He got her laughing and got her to join him on a date (she was chaperoned by her sister on this occasion).

She told Cassini she was in love with Ray Milland. The silver-tongued and confident Aries told her it was not a problem and that she would be engaged to him within a year.

Grace left for LA the next day, but Oleg made sure he was seen by gossip columnists in the company of beauties such as Pier Angeli and Anita Ekberg in order that he would be seen and read about by Grace in their columns.

They eventually met up again on the French Riviera where they spent an evening together in what Cassini describes as a 'distressingly platonic' situation. He poured out his heart to Grace, declared the essence of his inner desires and that was it, his persistence paid off.

Oleg Cassini's biggest obstacle to life-long happiness with Grace Kelly was his past (he had been married before and linked with many beautiful women) which caused a problem for Grace's mother who considered Oleg a bad risk for a husband. Her father, who was an old-fashioned racist, considered Cassini to be too much of a foreigner.

Grace Kelly and William Holden: Grace met William Holden when they made The Bridges of Toko Ri together in 1955. They had "quite a fling" and a friend of Holden's remarked that he was crazy about her.

Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby: In 1955 Grace starred with Bing Crosby and William Holden in The Country Girl. Although she had been involved with Crosby before his wife Dixie died in 1952 he was unaware she had also been involved with Holden.

By 1955 which is the year that Crosby proposed to Grace, Crosby is said to have been distraught that Grace turned him down. Privately he carried a torch for Grace Kelly for the rest of his life despite marrying again.

Grace Kelly and David Niven: At first glance there doesn't appear to be the same kind of exact connection that Grace Kelly has so far in this case study delivered, but if this brief and discrete affair ever really happened it was never in the public eye and could have lasted a very short time. Apocryphal rumour has it that Prince Rainier asked Niven which of the women he had bedded was the best conquest. Niven is said to have replied "Grace, er, Gracie Fields."

Whether this legendary dalliance ever took place is not altogether clear, I would prefer to regard this relationship as a close friendship that is included here without prejudice.

Grace Kelly and HSH Prince Rainier of Monaco: Grace Kelly must have felt difficult when she woke up to realise what she was about to do. She told Oleg Cassini: "I will learn to love him."

As you would expect from a couple who do not marry for love, they drifted apart, they stopped sharing the same bed then they moved into separate bedrooms. Later Grace spent most of her time in Paris while Rainier lived in Monte Carlo.

Jane Ellen Wayne writing in The Golden Girls of MGM states that in 1953 Aristotle Onassis had invested heavily in Monte Carlo and later spoke to Gardner Cowles, the publisher of Look magazine, about the sagging economy of Monaco and how they might lure the American dollar there. One solution writes Wayne was to marry Prince Rainier off to a beautiful movie star; the first one that came to mind was Marilyn Monroe. Cowles offered to arrange a meeting with Norma Jean, who was only too happy to help, but by then Rainier was engaged to Grace Kelly.

This story paints a none-too-romantic picture of the machinations of state that led Grace Kelly to Monaco's Cathedral of St Nicholas on 18th April 1956. Her hit-rate among her leading men had been in the high 90% region, but each one was an encounter based on her preference: she was attracted to them. Her Royal Prince brought different qualities to her life; he fitted her father's ambitions for a socially acceptable marriage for his daughter.

Grace Kelly and Cary Grant: Unlike all her other leading men, according to Nigel Cawthorne's Sex Lives of the Hollywood Goddesses, Grace Kelly was actually a Royal Princess when she had a six year affair with Cary Grant, her co-star in To Catch a Thief. It should be noted that Cary Grant is quoted as saying: "Grace and I were never romantically inclined in any possible way."

But then he would say that and, what's more, he said it in the 1950's before their alleged affair and before she married Ranier and in response to rumours that were circulating because according to James Spada: "so potent was the charge between the two stars."

HSH Prince Rainier of Monaco and Gisele Pascal: Before he met Grace Kelly, Prince Rainier was involved for six years with a French actress called Gisele Pascal. It was expected that any prospective bride of Rainier's would undergo a maternity test owing to the agreement that if Monaco was ever to be without a male heir, it would revert to French rule. Gisele Pascal underwent such a test and failed. This meant that Rainier had to break off their relationship. It is suggested that the prince's spiritual advisor, Father Francis Tucker, did not approve of Gisele. When he finished their relationship, the Prince said to Father Tucker, "If you ever hear that my subjects think I do not love them, tell them what I have done today."

Gisele later married and bore a child, provoking the rumour that the results of her maternity test were falsified.

I can't imagine Prince Rainier being married to Marilyn Monroe nor Gisele Pascal. Well, if he did marry Marilyn then, maybe both she and Grace would have been alive today.

By the way, does anyone have a picture of Ms. Pascal???
