    Description

    To Catch a Thief (Paramount, 1955). Insert (14" X 36").
    Cary Grant, a retired jewel thief, is suspected of pulling off a daring jewel heist in Monte Carlo, when the job was done in the same method he would use. Grant knows that the only chance he has of clearing himself is to expose the real thief. Alfred Hitchcock directed this classic thriller and shot the film on location in Monte Carlo. Grace Kelly was Grant's love interest in the story line and she would soon become a real-life princess of Monaco when she married Prince Rainier. This film was made at the peak of Hitchcock's career and the posters from his films in this mid-1950s period are among his most collectible. The poster was backed primarily to flatten the fold lines and a few crimps within the image. There is some minor airbrushing to the borders with just a bit more in the lower left and right corners and within the blue credit block. Very Fine- on Paper.
