Beauty Icon: Hitchcock Blondes

Grace Kelly in Rear Window (1954)
The ultimate patrician blonde, Kelly starred in three of Hitchcock's films: Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, and To Catch a Thief. It was on the French Rivera set of Thief where the actress would meet her prince. Kelly retired from film to become Monegasque royalty in 1956, but always credits Hitchcock for being her one, true cinematic teacher: "He taught me everything. It was thanks to him that I understood that murder scenes should be shot like love scenes, and love scenes like murder scenes."
