about this item

Jewel thievery, car chases, and romance on the French Riviera. Alfred Hitchcock's Oscar-winning film To Catch a Thief brought together Hollywood's two most glamorous stars, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant, in the most glamorous place on Earth, the French Riviera. It is a tale of jewel thievery, intrigue, false identity, covert investigation, and, most of all, romance.

Kelly and Grant strike sparks off each other to a backdrop of sophisticated living and glorious scenery. This iconic and much-loved film was based on a novel by the American thriller and travel writer David Dodge. He took his inspiration from real-life events in the South of France, when he was briefly suspected of being a daring cat burglar and lifting jewelery worth $250,000 from the palatial establishment next door to his small rented villa. Once the real thief was behind bars, Dodge wrote at breakneck speed. Alfred Hitchcock snapped up the film rights before publication, visualizing his two favorite stars in the lead roles. Hitchcock worked with his screenwriter, John Michael Hayes, to produce the film script that would take Hollywood's finest to the South of France.

Mr Dodge, Mr Hitchcock, and the French Riviera tells the true story of the events behind the novel and the film To Catch a Thief.
