Cinema Saturday "To Catch A Thief"

Thanks A Million!

When a reformed jewel thief is suspected of returning to his former occupation, he must ferret out the real thief in order to prove his innocence.

  • Won Oscar and 4 other nominations.
  • John Robie mentions that as a youth he was in a trapeze group that traveled around Europe. In real life, Cary Grant was in an acrobatic troupe that toured around Europe (and eventually came to America) when he was young.
  • According to the script, the character John Robie was 35. Cary Grant was 50 at the time of filming.
  • On 14 September 1982, Grace Kelly was killed in an automobile accident in Monaco, supposedly on the very same road as her famous chase scene in this film and not far from where she had a picnic scene with Cary Grant. She was 52 years old and lost control of her car after apparently suffering a stroke while at the wheel.

What A classic.. I haven't seen this movie in ages. When I started viewing this movie I was trying to think ahead.. In a few seconds it all came flooding back.. I felt like it was just yesterday sense I had seen this classic.. All it took was a single word. "CAT" and I had that 
A HA moment. Then I was thinking in my mind wildly about the whole story .. And who the CAT really was... You have to LOVE the two main player in this show. The Hunky Cary Grant and the beautiful Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly.. While I was watching this movie I was just in ahhhh of her beauty...
