ALFRED HITCHCOCK FILM FESTIVAL – TO CATCH A THIEF

Rating: M
Length: 105 mins
Cast: Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, Jessie Royce Landis

TO CATCH A THIEF (1955) High-toned silliness of an exquisite caliber, Hitchcock’s French Riviera romantic mystery is a key part of his filmography. Ladling on the suavity, Cary Grant plays a retired cat burglar searching for the at-large criminal who’s making him look bad. But it’s glamorous Grace Kelly—peeling around those high corners—who steals the movie. as enjoyable and engaging now as it was 40 years ago. Though the Riviera location photography is pleasing, our favorite scene takes place in a Paramount Studios mockup of a luxury hotel suite, where Grant and Kelly make love while a fireworks display orgasmically erupts outside their window.
