To Catch a Thief

To Catch a Thief

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
(USA, 1955, Digital)

Alfred Hitchcock memorably pairs Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in this lively thriller, set on the sunny French Riviera. The debonair Grant plays John “The Cat” Robie, a notorious retired jewel thief who sets out to prove his innocence when accused of a string of burglaries. The radiant Kelly is Frances Stevens, an elegant socialite who gets involved with solving the crimes as romance blooms. Watch for Kelly’s fabulous costumes designed by Edith Head.
