To Catch a Thief (1955)
Jessica Royce Landis
This is a Hitchcock film!
John Robie (Cary Grant) is a reformed jewel thief. When a copy cat starts stealing jewels, of course, the authorities suspect John Robie. He’s on the run and determined to catch the thief and clear his name.
I was a little surprised when I watched this film. It isn’t as suspenseful as I thought it would be. I didn’t think this was Hitchcock’s best film. And! I didn’t like Frances Stevens (Grace Kelly)! *gasp* Now, I saw “High Noon,” with Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly and I loved her in that film, but I didn’t like her role at all as Frances Stevens. I did like Jesse Stevens (Jessica Royce Landis), the mother. 🙂 I thought she was fun and entertaining. I knew who the jewel thief was from the beginning of the film, however, my conundrum??? How was John Robie going to catch said thief???
Have you seen this film? I love to hear your thoughts.
