It had been rumored that she was driving on the same stretch of highway in Monaco that had been featured in To Catch a Thief, although her son, Prince Albert of Monaco, says it was not the same road. Her big break came in 1949, with a role in Adam's Rib. At the age of 52, Princess Grace suffered a stroke while driving. She had a few more minor roles, before moving back to New York and the stage.

Born Judith Tuvim in New York City, she began her career on the stage. Her first movie was Greenwich Village in 1944. In 2002, a new treaty between France and Monaco clarifies that even if there are no heirs to carry on the dynasty, the Principality will remain an independent nation rather than revert to France.
Judy Holliday (June 21, 1921 - June 7, 1965) was an American actress. Prince Rainier and Princess Grace had three children:. Gisèle and Rainier supposedly parted when a physical examination reportedly found her to be infertile (she later married and had children). Before Grace Kelly drew Rainier's attention, French film star Gisèle Pascal had been his love interest for six years (she was born Gisèle Tallone in Cannes, France). Prince Rainier's paternal grandfather, Prince Louis II of Monaco had done just that in 1919 when he adopted his illegitimate daughter Charlotte Louvet, who would become Rainier's mother, and made her his heir Princess Charlotte of Monaco. Nonetheless, survival of the nation was a different matter than the survival of the dynasty, and here there was a history of concern about fertility.
In fact, there was really little actual danger that Monaco would revert to France as, since 1882, a childless prince of Monaco has been able to adopt an unrelated heir, thereby ensuring Monaco's survival as a principality. Tales were circulated that Monaco would revert to France in the absence of an heir; and though there is no requirement for a Catholic marriage, it was thought unlikely that a Catholic prince would divorce and remarry if his chosen wife was barren. Her Catholicism and ability to bear children were key factors in her being chosen to marry Prince Rainier, as dynasties always make great import of their survival. She reportedly was surprised to learn from Rainier that she was expected to give up her film career entirely, but followed his wishes.
The musical comedy High Society (1956) was her last film, as her marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco marked her retirement from acting. Before her marriage, she was previously involved with Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Ray Milland, William Holden, Oleg Cassini, and Jean-Pierre Aumont. While it was being filmed, she had engaged in a brief affair with co-star Bing Crosby which was kept quiet to protect both their reputations. In 1955 she was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Country Girl. Kelly made three films with Alfred Hitchcock: Dial M for Murder, Rear Window, and To Catch a Thief.
It earned Kelly an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress, but the award went to Donna Reed for her role in From Here to Eternity. The film Mogambo (1953), a drama set in the Kenyan jungle, centers on the love triangle portrayed by Kelly, Clark Gable, and Ava Gardner. The following year she "starred" with a minor role in High Noon (1952), a generally praised but somewhat controversial western starring Gary Cooper. Though her family had opposed her becoming an actress, Kelly became a fashion model and appeared in her first film, Fourteen Hours (1951), when she was 22.
Kelly Drive in Philadelphia is named for John, Jr., who was a city councilman there. Her father was a self-made millionaire and a gold-medal-winning Olympic sculler, and her brother "Jack" followed in that tradition.
