Hollywood's Grace Kelly & Alfred Hitchcock

Tonight I’m watching “Rear Window”.  I think the designs by Edith Head really showed Grace in her best light.  I love the iconic black and white dress and the bold green suit designed by Edith Head.

It’s a suspense film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, based on a 1942 short story "It Had to Be Murder". The film stars James Stewart as a photographer who spies on his neighbors while recuperating from a broken leg; Grace Kelly as his girlfriend; Thelma Ritter as his nurse; Wendell Corey as a police detective; and Raymond Burr as one of the neighbors.

The film is considered by many filmgoers, critics and scholars to be one of Hitchcock's best. It received four Academy Award nominations.
