Summary: I didn't find it particularly involving. It starts off quite strong in the first couple of scenes, but the long middle portion feels drawn out and, at times, slightly boring. The unnecessary romance is most of the cause.
Excerpt: While I don't think this is a restoration ala The Ten Commandments, this is an excellent looking transfer. I take that back, it's a fantastic video transfer!! The beautiful colors and solid, sharp picture quality, evidence of the Vista Vision process made for a wonderful transfer.
Excerpt: Great transfer that allows Grace Kelly to be her absolutely stunning best. The kiss scene has never looked like that before. For a 1955 movie, VistaVision allows for 21st century quality. Hats off to Paramount on this tranfer. ptb
Excerpt: Aliasing during the first few minutes (Grant's shirt) is my biggest problem. The HD makes obvious the difference between studio scenes vs the "live" ones. On the plus iside colors are awsome. Buy if the price is right or a fan of Hitchcock
Hitchcock + Grant + Kelly + France + VistaVision = C'est Manifique!

Excerpt: Not Hitchcock's best movie, but To Catch a Thief really shines in this remastered Blu Ray release. The colors sparkle and at times even look three dimensional. You will see things that you never saw before. Pick this one up, you won't be sorry.
