NEW RESTORATION | There are fireworks, quite literally, between Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief, a sexy, sophisticated romantic thriller set (and shot) on the French Riviera. Grant plays a retired cat burglar who may or may not be back in business; Kelly (here a year away from becoming Princess Grace of Monaco) is a glamorous American tourist husband-hunting on the Côte d'Azur. Hitchcock is working in light-entertainment mode in this pleasingly frothy caper movie, which falls between Rear Window and The Trouble with Harry in the Master of Suspense’s storied filmography. The chic, fit-for-a-princess clothes are by Edith Head; the Oscar-winning colour cinematography, in VistaVision, is by Hitchcock regular Robert Burks. This was Kelly’s third and final film for the director and one of her last roles in the cinema.
