Alfred Hitchcock (Director), John Michael Hayes (Screenplay)
Released: Aug. 5th, 1955
Runtime: 1 hour, 46 minutes
A delightful Hitchcock film about an ex-burglar who must catch a thief who’s been copying this style before he gets accused of the wrong crimes. His time is running out as the police are close behind him yet he finds time for a little romance of course. A classic masterpiece starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant.
The chemistry between Grant and Kelly pretty much burns a hole through the screen and when you combine this steamy chemistry with Hitchcock's artistry, brilliantly illustrated during the characters initial meeting to that classic hotel room encounter with our two protagonists separated by a window blazing with fireworks, it is clear that there was no director who could take an ordinary story and turn it into blazing entertainment better than Alfred Hitchcock.
