In today's Hitchcock film, two of the stars from our previous picks team up for this delightful jewel thief mystery set in the French Riviera. Filmed on location, the countryside is gorgeous as Cary Grant is the typical Hitchcock wronged man framed for something he didn't do, in this case, a jewel heist. He meets up with the beautiful Grace Kelly and works to find the real culprit committing a series of cat burglaries among wealthy patrons. Some consider this one of Hitchcock's more lightweight thrillers, but to me there's nothing wrong with that at all, and I think it's one of his most purely enjoyable. Cary Grant and Grace Kelly have sparkling chemistry and it's incredibly entertaining from start to finish. People have tried to replicate the formula for this kind of movie ever since- movie stars, exotic locations, romance, mystery, and it almost never comes together this well. It's the mark of a great director who could make it look so easy.
