To Catch a Thief
Sunday, July 29, 2012, 3:00 p.m.
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1955, 106 mins. New restoration on DCP. With Cary Grant, Grace Kelly. Hitchcock’s Technicolor crime caper is the acme of glamorous 1950s escapism. Grant is devilishly charming—as ever—playing a retired cat burglar on the Riviera suspected of masterminding a new wave of robberies. While he tries to find out who really did it, a gorgeous American tourist catches his eye. Filmed partly on location in France, this is a gloriously shot, deliriously witty entertainment.
