I’m going to start out with a confession: Films are something I rarely have made time to see (as you can read more about here), but I’m working on changing that because there are many out there that are truly marvelous and worth every minute I spend watching them. I’ve seen a few older movies; but honestly, I’m ashamed to say I had never seen Grace Kelly on screen. That is, until this past weekend when I saw To Catch a Thief.
First off, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly really had me with their fiery dialogue and enticing chemistry. And with Alfred Hitchcock in the director’s chair; I was, naturally, on my toes the entire time trying to guess who the jewel thief could be. This film was everything I wanted it to be. Mystery and suspense, romance, gorgeous views, beautiful gowns, fireworks, expensive jewelry, a cunning jewel thief, a car chase, and even a costume party. I couldn’t have asked for more!
