To Catch A Thief

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.
