My Thoughts:

This is another one that surprised me that I enjoyed it as much as I did. A film I found on Netflix and do plan on adding to my collection at some point in the near future. I liked how they did the story line... it easily kept my attention from beginning to end. And I enjoyed all the characters. Another film I feel comfortable recommending.

To Catch a Thief, a review by Dragonfire


To Catch a Thief



Cary Grant plays John Robie, a reformed jewel thief who was once known as "The Cat," in this suspenseful Alfred Hitchcock classic thriller. Robie is suspected of a new rash of gem thefts in the luxury hotels of the French Riviera, and he must set out to clear himself. Meeting pampered heiress Frances (Grace Kelly), he sees a chance to bait the mysterious thief with her mother's (Jessie Royce Landis) fabulous jewels. His plan backfires, however, but Frances who believes him guilty, proves her love by helping him escape. In a spine-tingling climax, the real criminal is exposed. Three Academy Award® nominations, including an Oscar® for "Best Cinematography."

My Thoughts

I think this is the first time that I've seen all of this one.  I saw some of it before...probably less than half of it.

This one is more lighthearted than the other Hitchcock movies I've seen.  I think it is more of a romantic comedy with just a touch of mystery added in.  The mystery is interesting, but it isn't that developed.  It seems more like a reason to get John to meet Francis.  I did figure out who the thief was fairly early.  Some of what happens is a little predictable, but that doesn't keep the movie from being entertaining and interesting.  There is really only suspense to one or two scenes.  The limited amount of suspense might bother some people.  I think the developing relationship between John and Francis is the main focus of the movie.  They are very flitry with each other and they have good chemistry together. 

Cary Grant and Grace Kelly are wonderful in the movie.  Grace makes Francis a somewhat cool, sophisticated woman.  There is an elegance to her that fits the character perfectly.  The gorgeous dresses she gets to wear help to add to the elegance of the character.  She and Grant work wonderfully well together.  Their characters are interesting and likable.  Jessie, Francis's mother, is another very entertaining character.  She doesn't have all the elegance of her daughter, but she is very likable.  I did like John Williams as Hughson, the insurance man.

The DVD version I watched - this one is one of my mom's DVDs - has a few interesting extras on the making of the movie.  It was only from them that I discovered that some of the movie was filmed in the studio instead of all of it being filmed on location.  There is also an interesting extra about Edith Head, the costume designer.

Overall, I really enjoyed this movie.  It is fun and entertaining and definitely worth watching even though it isn't as suspenseful as other Hitchcock movies.



I got a review posted on Epinions earlier tonight.

Usually I do not mind Ferengi episodes that much. There are some that I really enjoyed (like "Bar Associations" from season 4). But sadly here it is mixed with a mirror universe episodes, which also is the last mirror episode of this series. I would have liked to have a proper solution to this storyline instead of having it made into a comedy episode.
Besides this, it is an enjoyful episode.
