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: 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
Excerpt: A retired jewel thief nicknamed “The Cat” John Robie (Cary Grant) investigates the perpetrators of a series of jewelry related robberies. Robie visits his old gang members from the French Resistance including Bertani and Foussard.
Summary: To Catch A Thief was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and released in 1955. It stars Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. Grant plays John Robie, a retired jewell thief who now lives a seemingly blameless life on the French Riviera.
Summary: To Catch a Thief may not be essential Hitchcock, but it is certainly Hitchcock at his entertaining best. Cary Grant and Grace Kelly shine in this lightweight but engaging comedy thriller set in the beautiful landscapes of the South of France.
Conclusion: Hitchcocks's 1955 caper is in all honesty not my favourite Hitchcock film overall as I find outside of some of the Cary Grant and Grace Kelly interactions it never quite gains plot momentum, but it does look great.
