TO CATCH A THIEF

Part of Heist!

Cary Grant plays John Robie, a reformed jewel thief who was once known as “The Cat,” in this suspenseful and charming Alfred Hitchcock thriller. When Robie is suspected of a new rash of gem thefts in the luxury hotels of the French Riviera, he must set out to clear himself. Meeting pampered heiress Frances Stevens (Grace Kelly), he sees a chance to bait the mysterious thief with her mother’s (Jessie Royce Landis) fabulous jewels. His plan backfires, however — and John is forced to go on the lam to catch the thief and clear his own name.

“Hitchcock at his most witty, elegant and insouciant” —Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“It's not one of Hitch's most profound films, but it remains a twinkling, innuendo-laden pleasure, with Grant, Kelly and the French Riviera vying for your attention.” —Ed Potton, Times (UK)

“Hitchcock and screenwriter John Michael Hayes posited voyeuristic spectacle as the essence of cinema in REAR WINDOW; in TO CATCH A THIEF they validate their thesis with plenty of spectacle to be voyeuristic over.” —Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine
