Another Hitchcock Grace Kelly creation
on June 5, 2012
Grace Kelly is Hitchcock's quintessential blonde. Rear Window is a classic Hitchcock film. Grace Kelly can grace your home in a stunning scene from the classic film.
The beautiful black and white dress from Lisa Fremont's entrance to the movie is on display forever in this collectible doll. The beautiful tulle skirt with black floral detailing, fitted black shouldwrap top and tulle wrap create the effortless beauty Kelly so easily emulated on screen. Her golden locks are brushed back into a sophisticated style, and her pose is one of commanding feminine authority. Easy to see how LB Jefferies could not resist her, no matter how hard he tried!
The face sculpting does not seem to be a precise as the To Catch a Thief doll, but it is still less Barbie and more Grace.
The box is disappointing. Part of collectible dolls is their showcase boxes, so this lackluster box is something to be desired. Compared to the extravagant The Birds box, and even the less so To Catch a Thief box, I was hoping for more, but at least the doll delivers. Any Grace Kelly or Alfred Hitchcock fan should add this doll to their collection.
