To Catch a Thief (1955)

While parts of the movie were entertaining, I was not entertained by the resolution. With that being said, there's not too many chances to see Grace Kelly on screen, and I would recommend this movie for her alone.

Frances Stevens (Grace Kelly) and John Robie (Cary Grant)

With respect to Cary Grant, I've only otherwise seen him in His Girl Friday (1940) and I liked him in that movie more.


Netflix rated this film for me at 4.5. I gave it a 4.

Danielle Foussard (Brigitte Auber)
