Listen To Grace Kelly's 1965 Interview About JFK

The classic American film actress and Princess of Monaco reflected on the impact of his death.

In June of 1965, Princess Grace Kelly gave a wonderful interview to American novelist Paul Gallico, as part of an oral-history project spearheaded by the Kennedy Library.


"Well, it might not seem so today, but I, for one, cannot believe that a man of Mr. Kennedy's stature and achievements was put upon this earth for no other purpose than to stop an assassin's bullet. I believe that God allows these certain tragedies to happen in order to emphasize the man and his achievements and to inspire those who follow to have the strength and the will to accomplish his unfulfilled dreams."

The interview and animated video is part of the PBS Digital Studios wonderful ongoing series Blank on Blank:
