A short but stellar film career, Kelly was a leading lady in The Country Girl (1954), for which she won an Oscar for Best Actress. She also co-starred in notable films such as High Noon (1952), Dial M for Murder (1954), Rear Window (1954) and High Society (1956) – all by the age of 26. Retiring from acting to become Princess of Monaco, Kelly appeared in only eleven motion pictures, three of which are on the 1001 list, including: High Noon (1952), Rear Window (1954) and High Society (1956).
