Oh, these are great, Iceflower! I think I have seen some pictures of the event
before, but I am not sure now. It is very good to see more than just one pic of
an appearance of Grace, you get the feeling of today's current events
Am I wrong or is that Liza Minelli on the fourth pic?

Maybe you've seen a coloured version of some of the pics, as I have also seen some of
these in magazines before, Romy. And yes, you are right, it's Liza Minnelli, you've
got great eyes!

Here are some pics of Grace at the tribute evening for Alfred Hitchcock in New York in 1974
- I especially like the third and fifth pic as to her happy laughter

Grace 2
Grace 3
Grace 4
Grace 5 with her sister

Remarkable -- as Grace beat Liza's mom Judy Garland for Best Actress in 1954. Judy was very bitter about this loss, as it was considered as a major upset given that "A Star Is Born" was Judy's comeback movie and Grace at that time was considered more of a beauty than a real actress. Critics thought that Grace won simply because she appeared dowdy and plain in "The Country Girl" versus her usual glamorous self in her Hitchcock movies.

Well, A Star Was Born - but it wasn't Judy!
I love the last pic!

I think the following pic has not been posted before, Grace enjoying a cup of tea or coffee at an official engagement in the late 1970s:

Great pic Ice I think it was taken around 1979-1980 when the family was in Gstaad or somewhere in Austria.

Princess Grace

Now don't kill me for asking this, but is Princess Grace like Princess Diana? I mean, I know who she is obviously ( I love Peirre and Andrea) but I don't know that much about her. Can someone give me any info?

There will be a show on the french channel, France 3, to celebrate the late Princess. It will be presented by Stephane Bern, a royal specialist on Monday, September 3rd at 8.50 PM.

LIFE Magazine has just released (September, 2007 issue) a BEAUTIFUL photo tribute to the late Princess Grace. The entire magazine issue is exclusively Grace photos - many of which I have never seen before (and I thought I saw them all!). It's truly worth purchasing.
