To Catch A Thief

To Catch A Thief is one of Hitchcock's lighter masterpieces; ornately costumed on the sunny French Riviera the film is full of quiet visual and verbal quips. Cary Grant stars as John Robie, a reformed jewel thief opposite of Grace Kelly playing American socialite Frances Stevens. Robie narrowly eludes the police while trying to catch a new thief imitating his old style all the while flirting with Frances, looking dapper, and attending costume parties. While it's not my favorite Hitchcock it is the perfect escape for hot summer days when you wish you were vacationing in couture...
