In 1954, Grace Kelly played the lead female role in Rear Window and Dial M for Murder both directed by Alfred Hitchcock. These paved the way for her leading role in The Country Girl for which she earned the Oscar in 1955.

To Marcil just as to Hitchcock, Grace Kelly incarnated the ultimate mythical blond female.
