|Cary Grant plays John Robie, a reformed jewel thief who was once known as "The Cat," in this suspenseful Alfred Hitchcock classic thriller. Robie is suspected of a new rash of gem thefts in the luxury hotels of the French Riviera, and he must set out to clear himself. Meeting pampered heiress Frances (Grace Kelly), he sees a chance to bait the mysterious thief with her mother's (Jessie Royce Landis) fabulous jewels. His plan backfires, however, but Frances who believes him guilty, proves her love by helping him escape. In a spine-tingling climax, the real criminal is exposed. Three Academy Award nominations, including an Oscar for Best Cinematography.|

Editor's NoteA supposedly reformed cat burglar, out to prove himself innocent of a recent crime spree, tries to capture the thief who's terrifying the French Riviera. Cary Grant is devastatingly elegant as the reformed thief, John Robie, and charming enough to attract the attention of the lovely Frances Stevens (Grace Kelly), a wealthy and spoiled American traveling the Riviera with her widowed mother (Jessie Royce Landis). However, things do not begin on a romantic note. Robie is more interested in clearing his name than in pursuing the beautiful American, but the two will not go their separate ways so easily. When Mrs. Stevens has her jewels stolen, the snubbed Frances puts the police on Robie's trail. Now the dashing Robie will have to win the confidence and assistance of Frances if he is to ever set things right. The stars are radiant together, with an entrancing chemistry that sparkles, especially in the impromptu ad-libbed dialogue of the picnic scene. A series of elaborate set pieces combined with dramatic Riviera scenery make the film an enduring glamorous spectacle, featuring a fireworks kissing scene that is truly a classic.

|Alfred Hitchcock went a little soft in 1955, giving Cary Grant a largely throwaway role as a reformed cat burglar living incognito in the south of France. Hitch would really put Grant through the ringer in 1959's North by Northwest. Here, though, Grant's enjoying a day in the sun -- and night -- as he tries to track down the villain that's giving him a bad name. You see, John Robie (Grant) is retired. But some young upstart is stealing his M.O. -- and the new cat's eyes are on Robie's new would-be girlfriend, Frances (Grace Kelly), and her mom (Jessie Royce Landis)....read the full review|

|A slight, but nevertheless enjoyable entry into the Alfred Hitchcock canon, To Catch a Thief is an escapist comic romance masquerading as a caper film. It has some of the trappings of more serious Hitchcock thrillers, such as hidden identities and a stakeout plot, but its concerns are mostly feather light – the witty repartee of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly along with the sparkling French Riviera that went a long way in securing the film’s cinematography Oscar. There’s no question Hitchcock had an eye for comedy, but much of To Catch a Thief’s success is due to the innuendo-packed script by John Michael Hayes, who also penned the screenplay for Rear Window....read the full review|
