1hr 46mins // directed by:Alfred Hitchcock // featuring: Cary Grant, Grace Kelly // 35mm

Cary Grant and Grace Kelly sizzle in Alfred Hitchcok's lush romantic game of cat and mouse, as two burglars match wits in an attempt to ensare the other.

Released at a crossroads — launching Grant back into the limelight after a two year hiatus just as Kelly was on the verge of retiring her career — To Catch a Thief is one of the most entertaining thrillers from the master of horror and suspense. Shot in VistaVision along the luxurious coastal French Riviera, Hitchcock knows how to seduce an audience: vibrant scenery, exciting car chases, a handful of MacGuffin's that keep us on our toes, but most of all by the two dazzling stars in their final on-screen collaboration.
