In the American film The Swan, directed by Charles Vidor, Grace Kelly’s natural elegance is a wonder to behold as she portrays a princess torn between a marriage of convenience to a prince (played by Alec Guinness) and her passion for a handsome commoner (Louis Jourdan). It is impossible not to wonder whether this role might have been something of a premonition for the future princess of Monaco. MGM, the company which produced the film, arranged for it to be released on the same day as Kelly’s civil marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco, 18th April 1956.
