TO CATCH A THIEF (Released in Theaters in the USA 1955)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

To Catch a Thief—unusual Alfred Hitchcock film—features Cary Grant in a grand story of cat burglars targeting high end jewels and other valuables of high society. Watch for the dialogue ‘patter’ between Grant and Grace Kelly. That same ‘patter’ is used in the film, North by Northwest between Grant and Eva Marie Saint. The acting runs as Grant runs and is supported with a great presentation and a good story. It is a very watchable story for Cary Grant fans.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a good watch and worth watching for Alfred Hitchcock fans and Cary Grant fans alike. It sprinkles some suspense throughout its story. Watch for the cameo appearance of Alfred Hitchcock in the early part of the film.
