This is the third film I have watched in 24 hours, I need to up my final count of the year.
Hitchcock films are always worth watching, especially when they have Cary Grant, and this one was pretty decent, but not the best.
The story is about Cary’s character being accused of stealing jewels from the rich and wealthy in a resort town on the Mediterranean. In the past he was a infamous cat burgler nicknamed “The Cat”, but someone was copying his modus operandi, so he had to figure out who it was to clear his name. There was of course a pretty woman involved, in the form of Grace Kelly who was excellent along with Cary. Alfred made his cameo near the beginning of the film, on a bus sitting next to Cary.
There was a lot of dialogue, a bit too much I thought, but of course with Cary delivering his witty lines in that Cary Grant way it was quite enjoyable. The locations were fantastic too, the French Riviera was a stunning place even back in 1955.
It was filmed in widescreen, and in Technicolor (very vivid colours), and of course the cinematography was perfecto, so it looked absolutely fabulous.
This is not the best Hitchcock film, it was lacking suspense, but I still found it to be an enjoyable and entertaining film.
