Our Treasure of the Week To Catch A Thief In Pictures: starring Cary Grant and Grace Kelly seems to be the perfect movie to kick off our new series which will be published each Monday.

If you aren’t familiar with film, it is a 1955 romantic thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, from a screenplay by John Michael Hayes based on the 1952 novel of the same name by David Dodge. The film stars Cary Grant as a retired cat burglar who has to save his reformed reputation by catching a new “cat” preying on the wealthy tourists of the French Riviera. Grace Kelly stars opposite him as his romantic interest in her final film with Hitchcock.

This was Hitchcock’s first of five films in the widescreen process VistaVision. The film also led to another successful collaboration with Cary Grant, the 1959 classic North by Northwest.

Robert Burks won the Academy Award for Best Cinematography, while Hal Pereira, Joseph McMillan Johnson, Samuel M. Comer and Arthur Krams were nominated for Best Art Direction, and Edith Head was nominated for Best Costume Design.
