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: A retired cat burglar joins forces with an insurance agent to catch a copycat thief who is throwing suspicion onto him. To Catch A Thief lacks the darker edge that marked Hitchcock's best, but this film epitomizes the the kind of Hollywood glamour that is still to be equalled.
Summary: There aren't a lot of twists and turns in this more straightforward Hitchcock film, but the smartly-written romance and dialogue between Grace Kelly and Cary Grant is the stuff classic films are made of.
