A classic

Since I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check this flick. Unfortunately, honestly, I thought that the whole thing was slightly disappointing. I mean, I did like it but I was expecting more from it. Indeed, the plot (a renowned but retired thief is accused of stealing some jewels so he intends to catch the real thing) really sounded pretty cool but, unfortunately, I though... read more

Cary Grant. Grace Kelly. Alfred Hitchcock. The French Riviera.   There’s nothing else you need to make a wildly entertaining thrill ride, complete with some romance, action, and beautiful jewels. It’s charming minor Hitchcock, but an entry that is demonstrative of his range as an artist. After the one-two punch of the prior year’s Dial M for Murder and Rear Window, both claustrophobic mo... read more

This movie won the Academy Award for cinematography and it shows. The scenery of the French Riviera is shown throughout and is done beautifully.

This was a romantic thriller by Alfred Hitchcock. It was amusing enough, but not the caliber of movie that I normally associate with Hitchcock.

The romance was odd and seemed to really be one-sided, with Francie pursuing relentl... read more

"1.1.2020, YLE Areena Värikäs ja näyttävä, Rivieran maisemia tyylikkäällä laajakuvalla hyödyntävä hömppähitchcock. Juoni on ihan puutaheinää ja Grantin ja Kellyn (kaunis!) välinen sanailu on aivan luonnotonta näsäviisastelua, mutta kaikesta huolimatta puolisentoista tuntia kuluu sujuvasti eikä tätä katsoessa kyllä varsinaisesti tylsää tullut."

Mack's Movie Diary 2020 (40 movies items)

"My least favorite Carry Grant film so far, and my least favorite Hitchcock. This film won an Oscar for cinematography! Absurd! There where a couple scenes with lighting that where lovely, especially Grace Kelly talking to Cary Grant in the hotel room at night, diamonds sparkling at her neck. Cary Grant on the roof at the end had a decent moment as well. But for the most part I wasn't charmed, I've seen older films do a better job cobbling scenes together than this. Awkward and cheap spectacle. A"

" Grace Kelly has never looked lovelier and at home in this role; and this is a perfect role for Cary Grant. Hitchcock does it again!"

my half assed 2018 movie diary (40 movies items)

" Murder, mystery and intrigue on the French Riviera. The people are beautiful, the location is breathtaking, but the script is flimsy and the twist at the end didn't exactly make me faint from shock. Grace Kelly is absolutely gorgeous, in a cold and distant way; well manicured and perfect almost to a fault with no visible flaws. Cary Grant is a consummate charming gentleman as usual and somehow manages to not look like cradle robbing thot making out with women half his age. Not the best Hitc"

" While watching To Catch a Thief I was constantly thinking that there's a really great film in here somewhere. But it's just a fine film. Solid framework. Nice premise. Solid performances by charming people that got great chemistry between each other. There's a lot of fun in just that. But that's all basically this film is. It just feels like empty banter for the most of the time. I get that Hitchcock obviously wanted the film to be more about its two leads than the actual plot, but this caused"
