Levine's take on the Grace Kelly Story May 7, 2010
And it came out so bad they couldn't make bank on the story similarities. Middle class girl takes to show biz and becomes famous, so much so, an Italian Prince marries her. How much closer to the truth could you get? Not much.The movie is in B & W. Why? It lends to the idea that events took place in the past (say a decade into it; Kelly Married Ranier in '55 this movie is '65 when there was plenty of color film to be had).To have used the story of a princess as a way of satirizing the mores of British society is appalling.
Redeeming values: it was Joseph E. Levine who backed it. Julie Christie won her "Best Actress" Oscar for her performance. That's about all the good to come fo this effort. Even the promotional artwork couldn't be of more disservice to J Christie than what the studios have issued, The DVD is in Color and the VHS Tape has her looking like a wretched old hag.
