After embarking on an acting career in 1950, when she was 20, Kelly appeared in New York City theatrical productions and more than 40 episodes of live drama productions broadcast during the early 1950s Golden Age of Television. In October 1953, she gained stardom from her performance in director John Ford's film Mogambo starring Clark Gable and Ava Gardner, which won her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination in 1954. Subsequently, she had leading roles in five films, including The Country Girl (1954) with Bing Crosby, for which her deglamorized performance earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress. …

Other films include High Noon (1952), with Gary Cooper; and three Alfred Hitchcock films: Dial M for Murder (1954), with Ray Milland; Rear Window (1954), with James Stewart; To Catch a Thief (1955), with Cary Grant. In 1956, she played 'Tracy Lord' in the musical comedy "High Society (1956), with Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. The whimsical tale ended with her re-marrying her former husband, played by Crosby. The film was well received. It also turned out to be her final acting performance.

...Grace Kelly retired from acting at the age of 26 to marry Rainier, and began her duties as Princess of Monaco. They had three children: Caroline, Albert, and Stéphanie. Kelly retained her link to America by her dual U.S. and Monégasque citizenship. Princess Grace died at Monaco Hospital on September 14, 1982, succumbing to injuries sustained in a traffic accident the day before. After her death the French physicians treating her reported that a CAT scan had revealed she had suffered two brain hemorrhages. The first, occurred prior to the crash, and is believed to have been the inciting incident that led to the accident. The second, she suffered while in hospital, is believed to have been the result of physical trauma sustained in the accident. Princess Grace was buried in the Grimaldi family vault at Saint Nicholas Cathedral, in Monaco. At the time of her death she was 52 years old, survived by her husband of 26 years, and her three children Princess Caroline (b.January 23, 1957), Prince Albert (b.March 14, 1958-current Prince of Monaco), Princess Stéphanie (February 1, 1965).
