To Catch a Thief
For Ages 12 and Over
Cary Grant plays reformed jewel thief John Robie in this classic Hitchcock thriller. Suspected in a new series of gem heists in the luxury hotels of the French Riviera, Robie sets out to clear himself — and catch the real thief — with the help of pampered heiress Frances (Grace Kelly). His plan backfires, but Frances, who believes him guilty, proves her love by helping him escape. In a spine-tingling climax, the real criminal is exposed.
This is not like most of Alfred Hitchcock’s movies but still on the edge of being a thriller with a great cast. The combination of Cary Grant and Grace Kelly make it a classic. There is the mystery and romance along with some great scenery. In today’s world it would not make the top hit of the week but it truly is a classic of its time.
