Fantastic shot of a young Sidney Poitier in profile.
Isn’t she gorgeous?
None of Grace Kelly’s features are remarkable like, say, Elizabeth Taylor’s violet eyes, but together they form one of the most unforgettable faces to ever appear on the silver screen.
While reading “Life: Remembering Grace,” recently, I came across an interesting tidbit. When he was still a junior senator, John F. Kennedy came to Howell Conant, Kelly’s friend and portraitist, with an unusual request. He asked Conant to photograph him from every imaginable angle.
Kennedy then studied the photos to learn which were his good angles and which were unflattering. Conant’s advice to Kennedy and Kelly was the same: never be photographed looking straight at the camera− he because his eyes were set too close together, she because her of her square jaw.
Were Grace Kelly alive, she would be 82 today.
