This Day In History – Jill James

I have one of those This Day In History calendars and I love seeing the strange and wonderful, and sometimes sad things that happened in history.

September 14, 1982: Grace Kelly, Hollywood star and princess, dies.

This was the year after I graduated high school and I remember it well. Then they did a movie about her life. I was in awe that a woman, at the pinnacle of her career in Hollywood, would turn her back on it all to be a princess. But long before Diana, there was Princess Grace of Monaco, helping the needy and the poor, doing what she could with worldwide charities. She was loved by her people and many others around the world. A hero to all who knew her. I couldn’t believe when I heard she had died. I loved watching her old movies on late night TV or Saturday matinee. The Country Girl, To Catch a Thief, Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, and High Noon
