    Well he did an amazing oscar winning biopic about Ediath Piaf with Marion Cotillard giving one of the greatest performances now he is giving Grace Kelly a go and i’m excited.

    I don’t know why the idea of January Jones portraying Grace Kelly interests me. She has Kelley’s look and it shouldnn’t be hard for her to work on Kelly’s mannerism. If she gets an Oscar nom for this, it will be much easier for her to get nominated at Emmy (in case Mad Men lasts that long).

    But http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2011/03/07/january_jones_rules_out_grace_kelly_ro

    Anyway, I don’t think she will be on the short list to begin with.

    I actually watched Dial M for Murder last night (brilliant movie – didn’t know that it was made in 3D/using two cameras). La mome was a disaster of a film.

    January Jones should reconsider playing Grace Kelly because she would be perfect in this role. Say what you want about her acting chops but for me she’s excellent on Mad Men.

    Yikes.. The last two things I saw her in, a thriller with Liam Neeson and X-Men, she was absolutely painful to watch. I think Jones might be better off on television..? Let’s hope this biopic is a little more truthful about its subject’s life.

    Let’s hope Jones stays far away from this because I agree that she is painful to watch in the movies I’ve seen her in — I would love to see Charlize Theron tackle this. She’s never really done a role that plays off of her beauty. That, matched with her obvious talent, would be fascinating to watch, I think.

    He for me actually did an awful biopic with Marion Cotillard, who managed to rise above the shambles to accomplish something.

    I always have an open mind, but I don’t look forward to this.

    He will likely be as dishonest about Kelly’s personal life as he was about Piaf’s collaboration with the Nazis.

    Clearly she has the beauty and chops.. I like that idea.

    It made an international star out of Marion Cotillard (who came out of nowhere) and won her an Academy Award for Best Actress, which may be the toughest prize in the world to win (after U.S. President).  Some disaster, eh?

    Dial M for Murder remains for me the best use ever of 3D I’ve seen (Hugo close second). It was barely released in that format, and barely seen that way since. I’ve been fortunate enough to experience it twice.

    Grace Kelly was excellent playing against type in THE COUNTRY GIRL, although I still wish Oscar-less Judy Garland had taken home the statuette that year for A STAR IS BORN.  Garland’s performance of THE MAN THAT GOT AWAY in that film is one of musical cinema’s greatest and most iconic moments, but of course people took such brilliance from Garland for granted.

    Kelly is deservingly best known for her Hitchcock roles; she is perfect in REAR WINDOW, which for me is her best performance and surprisingly one that was snubbed by the Academy (but recognized with a Best Actress award from the National Board of Review).

    It was indeed her supreme performance, but it was the same year as Country Girl, so she got nominated for that instead

    This allows me very randomly to toss in I attended a buffet dinner hosted by Princess Caroline in Monaco that also included Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach (actually sat at the same table with Ringo). We were starving (it was about 10:30), but we all had to wait until HRH was done chatting with ballet patrons so that, following protocol, she was first in line at the buffet.

    The question I really wanted to ask Ringo was when was the last time he’d been in a buffet line.
