Flick Pick: To Catch A Thief

To Catch A Thief
(Paramount, 1954)

Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in Hitchcock's masterpiece thriller. Audiences in the 1950s didn't need James Bond: they had Cary Grant in movies like this, which set the table for that sophisticated series yet-to-come. Beautifully shot, this movie got the director of photography an Oscar, and Grace Kelly a husband. Neither she nor the French Riviera ever looked better on film.
