To Catch a Thief
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1955, 106 mins. New restoration on DCP. With Cary Grant, Grace Kelly. Hitchcock’s Technicolor crime caper is the acme of glamorous 1950s escapism. Grant is devilishly charming—as ever—playing a retired cat burglar on the Riviera suspected of masterminding a new wave of robberies. While he tries to find out who really did it, a gorgeous American tourist catches his eye. Filmed partly on location in France, this is a gloriously shot, deliriously witty entertainment.
