Between the years of 1950-1956 - The delicately pretty, Grace Kelly was, undeniably, one of Hollywood's most bankable actresses, bar none.

During her rather brief film career she became one of director, Alfred Hitchcock's favourite leading ladies, as he starred her in 2 of his most famous films of the time - "Dial M For Murder" and "Rear Window".

This book titled "A Life In Pictures" offers the reader a treasury of images of Kelly that span from her childhood, to her early modelling career, and, then, of course, onto her film roles.

Sad to say - On September 14, 1982 - Grace Kelly (52 at the time) suffered a stroke while driving back to Monaco and subsequently died in the crash that followed.
