The box office, the studios, the producers, everyone. They all benefitted. It was such a hot topic that, at the 1955 Oscars, emcee Bob Hope joked that there would be a special award given out that evening for the producer "brave enough not to make a picture with Grace Kelly." That evening, Kelly won the Best Actress Oscar for her work in The Country Girl, beating such luminaries as Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Jane Wyman, and Dorothy Dandridge.I'm sure the box office benefited enormously from the fact that Kelly had appeared in Dial M for Murder, Rear Window and The Country Girl all released in the same year.
