Grace Kelly, on screens big and small

Let’s pause for a moment and think of Grace Kelly, the exquisite actress who left the movies and this life far too soon (she died in a car accident in 1982). She would have turned 80 next month, and in her honor, Turner Classic Movies is hosting a Grace Kelly Festival, with a retrospective of her career screening throughout November. And this weekend, she’ll be on screen in SIFF Cinema’s Alfred Hitchcock series, in “Rear Window” and “Dial M For Murder.”
Though my favorite remains “Vertigo,” I always think of “Rear Window” as one of Hitchcock’s most perfect films — and much of the reason is the chemistry between Kelly and James Stewart (who spends nearly the entire movie seated). Here, between them, is one of cinema’s great kisses. And that Edith Head dress deserves a smooch as well.
