HOW TO STEAL A MILLION (Theatrical Release USA 1966)

Ben Meyers’ rating— 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

How to Steal a Million—cute and fun—follows through with some great interaction between Peter O’Toole, Audrey Hepburn, a young Eli Wallach, and Hugh Griffith to provide a simple, straightforward story with easy comedy built in.

Storyline

Nicole’s (Audrey Hepburn) father, Charles Bonnet (Hugh Griffith) forges famous artistic works and passes them off as genuine. Nicole is afraid her father will get caught and the story is on as the family’s forged statuette, Venus by Cellini, is about to be investigated by museum insurance personnel.

Yes. It is a particular treat to see Peter O’Toole in some of his earlier films.
