John Landis on

To Catch a Thief

Released 1955
Distributor Paramount

The mid-50s French Riviera provides an attractive backdrop to one of Hitchcock’s lightest thrillers, with reformed cat burglar Cary Grant romancing a dazzling Grace Kelly, a spoiled rich girl whose Edith Head-designed clothes budget could bankroll several small countries for a year. Pure escapism. Won Robert Burks a best cinematography Oscar.
