Grace Kelly in Rear Window



I went to see a matinee of Rear Window today at the theater downtown. I'm so thankful that there's a theater close by that plays old movies, otherwise I'd never get to see my favorite films on the big screen! Anyhow, it's been a few years since I had seen it, and this time I really noticed what elegance Grace brings to the film. She also displays a gorgeous collection of early 50's fashion. It's funny, at the beginning of the movie her character kind of annoys me, but by the end I love her.

I love the scene where she comes in from work, opens her bag, and there is a sexy pouf of lingerie spilling out. I guess she is spending the night!

She really did look amazing. I felt the same way about her character when I first saw Rear Window: annoyance developing into love.

I don't know if you have cable or not, but if you do there is a channel that is nothing but old movies - OLD movies - they play a lot of Grace Kelly movies.
