Pacific Stars and Stripes (Newspaper) - July 23, 1967, Tokyo, JapanPrincess Grace narrates to special by Joan Deppa Monte Carlo Monaco up she sat by the sea under a canopy held by two male servants her Gossamer gown blowing in the wind. At first sight she looked like an illustration for a tale of the arabian nights but this modern Princess in a Rainbow hued gown by dior was not waiting for Aladdin s lamp to give her substance. Princess Grace of Monaco was being sheltered from Swift sea breezes by two canopy bearing television technicians so that her elaborate Hairdo would not be blown before the next scene of a television musical set in her adopted land. Her Serene highness looking remarkably Serene As she waited patiently for cameras to be positioned for the next take agreed to narrate the hour Long spectacular because she believed it would be Good for the tiny principality s tourist Industry. The color television special Monaco a est la Rose is a Light hearted explanation of the Carefree Monte Carlo philosophy incorporating highlights of Monasque life including the grand prix Auto race and the world s most famous Casino. It will be screened sometime late this year or Early next. Monaco As Princess Grace notes with a smile in introducing the filmed show is the real Star of the show with an International cast which ideally typifies the cosmopolitan spirit of this Riviera playground. French Singer Francoise Hardy British comedian Terry Thomas and special guest Star Gilbert Beaucl top the Bill. An equally International team produced the film. It was directed by German director Michael Phlegar and produced by american Roger Gimbel for Wolper productions of los Angeles in cooperation with Germany s largest television company Bavaria studio co., of Munich. It will be shown on Abc in the United states. The film Cost nearly $500,000 to produce. But As in the other rare instance since her marriage to Prince Rainier when Princess Grace has consented to return before the cameras she receives no payment for her services. That does not mean the former Grace Kelly of Philadelphia and Hollywood has abandoned any of the professionalism that won her the Academy award for the country quite the contrary. She attacked her appearance in this new venture with the same sort of quiet determination that brought her screen stardom while carefully maintaining the dignity which the Monagas ques expect from their Princess. She was As fastidious about getting her lines right i keep leaving out who in this line. I must say it that s the Way the writer wrote it As she was about her appearance. She had seven costume changes All dior gowns from her personal wardrobe selected from his latest collection and seven different hairdos to complement them. In the Early sequences she herself arranged her blonde hair but for the More complicated styles a Hairdresser was sent from Alexandre s in Paris. Princess Grace served As her own artist throughout the production. The total effect made even the efficient German technicians pause to ooh and Seldom has the 38-year-old Princess looked More Beautiful. Her figure slim again after the birth of her third child is that of a Young girl but a Young girl with All the regal sophistication of a Princess born. She had to fit in official engagements including a reception for members of the International rotary club which held its 1967 convention in Monaco. But if one More take was required to get the right effect she agreed without hesitation. We had one shot right but then the Sun came out and i asked her to do it again because Monte Carlo looked prettier in the background said director Phlegar. She was very Good about because the film will be distributed internationally she also Learned two sets of lines one in English and one in French. Her French is quite fluent said a Friend. She spoke very Little when she met Rainier. The children Are absolutely bilingual even Little Stephanie although she does t say much in either language yet. And Albert and Caroline sometimes Correct their Mother if they hear her say something she also Learned a few lines of German to Greet the German Crew working on the television spectacular. The director called her your highness in giving directions. The producer usually called her to have called her Grace or worse yet miss Kelly would have embarrassed both her and the Monagas ques who sometimes wandered by to watch the filming. Sometimes it was almost hard to believe she was not born into european Royalty rather than married into it. But every so often a mannerism reveals that the Monasque Princess grew up with the Irish Kellys of Philadelphia. As during the splendid Twilight sequence shot Over looking Monaco s Harbor which she was asked to do again. Okay she said As any Philadelphia girl might. But she moved to her position like a Royal Princess. Go humor by Gyst Dale Overvold philatelic notes Pwhb-Mjbcm-mwmamal.= Riff so Chichester honoured "1 Don t think i closed my eyes that Tim coach.
