In just seven years (from 1950 through 1956), Grace Kelly made eleven feature films. They established her as one of the screen's iconic beauties, and as a performer of rare intelligence and wit. Donald Spoto, a personal friend of Kelly s in whom she confided, is in a unique position to tell the story of her transformation from convent girl from Philadelphia to last star of Hollywood s Golden Age to European princess. In this revelatory biography, Spoto draws on interviews with those who knew her from James Stewart and Cary Grant to Fred Zimmerman as well as a series of taped interviews with Kelly which have never before been published.

Reviews

"...an intimate portrait of one of the world's most famous women. A fine tribute to a true star" * Waterstone's Books Quarterly * "Spoto tells her story movingly and well" * Sunday Express * "Spoto was a close friend of Kelly's, so this is as definitive a biography as we will ever get" * S, Sunday Express magazine * "Drawing on previously unpublished conversations, Spoto explores how Kelly changed Hollywood" * Harpers Bazaar * "Kelly's life as told here reveals a gentler Donald Spoto than we're used to: his friendship with the star has ensured a generosity of judgement throughout...Some may yearn for a less sympathetic portrait, but it's hard to imagine that any subsequent biography could do such consummate justice to her life and career" * The Times *
