Zubiaur thanks for posting these very nice photos, really beautiful pics that I have not seen before. Grace did always seem to hold herself just perfect, actually I don't remember seeing an unflattering photo of her ever. She knows how to wear a great piece of jewelery also.

I read that Princess Grace loved ballet and opera.
She had always visited them.
During the 1950s and 1960s, the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo closed, reopened, and shut its doors once again. Yet Princess Grace of Monaco dreamed of returning a ballet company to her principality. In 1985, her daughter, the Princess of Hanover, founded Les Ballets de Monte Carlo.

Zubiaur, I love the third photo.. Grace's broken hand was tied up by the headscarf from Hermes.

Beautiful pics Zubiaur! I've never seen them before. Grace and Ava, two of the most beautiful actresses of Hollywood. Not even today you can find that type of beauty.
The 2nd pic is just awesome and the last one is cute. It's always cute to see Grace with her family

Author Donald Spoto refutes claims that Grace's voice was dubbed for "True Love" in "High Society".

The photos are great, Zubiaur!

Grace was a goddess of Monaco.

Red face Glistening Seas

Perhaps at a glance one would think that she would have felt caged in Monaco and would have preferred hollywood.

However, in reality Pss. Grace must have known hollywood changed from the time she was there do you suppose?

let's face it the Pss. Grace, Sofia Loren, Debbie Reynolds, Doris Day glamour girl days really ended when Pss. Grace left for Monaco it seems. ''

All those wonderful musicals extravaganza's that fell by the wayside could never be re-captured.

Also, somehow a role less than the Glamourous roles she played would have made serious misuse of her talents and her beauty imho.

So, being in Monaco really was a natural place for her to be; because all her beauty and talents were useful!

I think the way Grace developed her role as Princess in Monaco was very much to her credit. She instigated so many tradition and patronised many good causes so that she made Monaco a place that attracted a great deal of worldwide publicity and interest. Accounts indicate that she initially found it difficult to adjust to the traditions of Palace life, but gradually won people over with her dedication & charm. Monaco must may have seemed a cage at times, but over time she managed to find a way to "break out" & take her place on the international stage.

i think that somehow all her life she aspired going back there . Not only in glamorous roles but also in simpler roles or intelectuall ones. many efforts grace did while princess showed her still alive desire to perform. she wasn`t alowed in hollywood but she made "Children of the Teathre Street" , she did poetry reading. I think she was very happy when asked to star in "Marnie" but it was not to be... . She felt inner resources to give life to carachters in her own particular way. I read something that she was doing a movie in 1982 which remained unfinished because of her death. It was a movie, movie or just a documentary? Did it appear on screen even unfinished like Monroe`s "Something Got To Give" ?
