Throwback Thursday Movie: To Catch A Thief
A retired cat burgler, is just trying to have a peacful holiday on the French Riviera
Costume Design: Edith Head
Cary Grant famously said that Grace Kelly was is favourite co star and considering this is their only move together it’s safe to say this is the movie he was referring to. The chemistry between them jumps from the screen.
This movie isn’t your typical Hitchcock, but thankfully, it is your typical Grace Kelly outfit treasure trove, the white gown being my favourite but even her fancy dress costume deserves a mention.
You can understand why Edith Head, the moves costume director, gets so much praise. The way she moves in all the outfits leaves me wanting to change my entire wardrobe, no matter how much the shapes would not suit me.
What out for the v. cool dress/swimsuit
Beware, Grace Kelly movies will feature regularly in these lists, but as she only ever made a handful movies before she became Princess Grace, (a Meghan Markle fore runner) and gave up the gig, they’re will not be that many but if you have never seen any of her movies trust me, you’re in for a treat.
