About the Film
‘It takes a thief to catch a thief’ is an old saying and that’s the thesis Alfred Hitchcock is exhibiting in his new mystery-thriller-romance at the Paramount.
The movie stars Cary Grant as a retired cat burglar who has to save his reformed reputation by catching a new “cat” preying on the wealthy tourists of the French Riveira. Grace Kelly stars opposite him as his romantic interest in her final film with Hitchcock.
The film won an Academy Award for best cinematography and was nominated in another two categories – best art direction & best costume design
