To Catch A Thief


(out of 5)

plays a famous thief who has retired to an easy life in Monaco. When jewel robbery goes on the rise in his city, he finds himself blamed for all of it and must clear his name. is a visiting American heiress who gets turned on at the thought of his criminal activity, so naturally the two of them find a lot to do when they’re alone in the dark. More famous for having been the film responsible for Kelly’s meeting her eventual husband, Prince Rainier of Monaco, the film is one of Hitchcock’s glossiest film adventures. Gorgeously shot in bright Technicolour, it’s exciting and daring, a film you’ll enjoy thoroughly if you don’t expect the kind of suspense you get from Rear Window or Shadow of a Doubt.
