REVIEWS:





"To Catch a Thief comes off completely as a hit in the old Hitchcock style. .... In his accustomed manner, Mr. Hitchcock has gone at this job with an omnivorous eye for catchy details and a dandy John Michael Hayes script. Most of his visual surprises are gotten this time with scenery--with the fantastic, spectacular vistas along the breathtaking Cote d'Azur. As no one has ever done before him, Mr. Hitchcock has used that famous coast to form a pictorial backdrop that fairly yanks your eyes out of your head. Almost at the start, he gives you an automobile chase along roads that wind through cliff-hanging, seaside villages. The surprise is that it is seen from the air! If you have ever been on the Riviera, you can imagine how brilliant this is, in color and VistaVision, splashed on that giant screen. .... 'To Catch a Thief' does nothing
but give out a good, exciting time."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; August 5, 1955
