The captions make these pictures even more interesting.  Some of these movie stars are unheard of today, but obviously made a splash decades ago.  Others are people I'd heard of, but had no idea what they looked like.  And others, of course, had lasting fame.  Great pictures of the wedding of Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly.
