Though it was made by Alfred Hitchcock in 1955, right in the middle of the era that gave us Vertigo, Rear Window, and other classics, To Catch a Thief stands apart from just about everything else in the director’s body of work. To a surprising degree, it offers style and romance in place of suspense. But the film, which is set on the glamorous French Riviera stars and Cary Grant as a retired cat burglar and Grace Kelly as a wealthy heiress, remains as fresh and entertaining as ever. Though most of the extras have appeared on previous editions, they do a good job of providing background for this widescreen Technicolor film.
