I remember sitting in class watching Rear Window and being absolutely entranced by her presence.
I then remember the famed professor Drew Casper talking about Grace Kelly's entrance. He walked from side to side of the theater pretending to turn on lights.
However, Grace Kelly wasn't actually this amazingly pristine woman that Hitchcock imagined her to be.
Instead, she slept with most (if not all) of her male co-stars and used her femininity to attract any and all male attention. Some call her a slut, others applaud her feminist behavior, but I think she was just another heartbroken woman.
This past week/weekend, all the movie bloggers were talking about this upcoming Grace Kelly biopic and throwing out potential names. Basically, every single blonde actress' name is getting thrown out there. Carefully considering age, physicality, and actually talent my vote is for January Jones or Sienna Miller.
To be honest, I would love if they picked a complete unknown for this part. Casting any female actress with a strong star persona could damage the audience's perception of Grace Kelly the movie. The name Grace Kelly draws in so much interest on its own that producers don't need a big star to sell the film.
I'm already excited to see the film.
