Grace, You are too Tall

Grace Kelly's first commercial featured her spraying a can of insecticide around a room. Early in Grace Kelly's career, when she was auditioning for plays, many casting directors found her to be too tall as she was reportedly 5'6"-5'7".

Grace Kelly appeared in ads for Max Factor Colorfast Lipstick (with Green Fire costar Stewart Granger), Lustre-Creme Shampoo, Lux Toilet Soap, Cashmere Bouquet soap, National accounting machines, and Old Gold cigarettes.

Grace Kelly is referenced in the songs "Grace Kelly" by Mika; "Grace Kelly Blues" by Eels; "Grace Kelly with Wings" by Piebald; "Grace Kelly" by the Motion Sick; "Vogue" by Madonna; "We didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel; "'59" by Brian Setzer Orchestra; "Six Billion People" by Paul Gilbert; "Grace Kelly" by Los Coquillos; "Four Flights Up" by Lloyd Cole and the Commotions; "That Night" by Rufus Wainwright; "Grace Kelly" by Die Ärzte; "Bend over, I'll Drive" by The Cramps; and "Princess Grace" by Spuds.
