To Catch a Thief

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 106 minutes. Rated PG. English.

Cary Grant plays John Robie, reformed jewel thief who was once known as "The Cat," in this suspenseful 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 fabulous jewels.

His plan backfires, but Frances, who believes him guilty, proves her love by helping him escape.

In a spine-tingling climax, the real criminal is exposed.
