I watched ‘To Catch A Thief‘ again a couple of nights ago. Boy what a great movie! I am a HUGE Cary Grant fan and this film really showcases him. He is very subdued in it though. I hadn’t realized how much his performance is backed up and bolstered by the rest of the cast. Grace Kelly is great. She makes Francie strong yet frail and a bit mysterious. She’s playing the game but is soon caught in her own net. Jessie Royce Landis as Francie’s mother, Jessie, is a real joy. Brigitte Auber as Danielle is wonderful. She can hold her own in the presence of Grace Kelly. Her scenes with Grant are a lot of fun. I had forgotten that Hitchcock had directed this. His direction is fantastic. The scenery/setting is gorgeous, absolutely beautiful.
To Catch A Thief is a must see for Cary Grant fans. And it is recommended to everyone else too.
