    Description

    To Catch a Thief (Paramount, 1955). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Insert (14" X 36").
    Engaging in a sophisticated game of cat and mouse, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant shine in this Alfred Hitchcock thriller set in the glamorous French Riviera. His most stylish film with his two favorite actors, Hitchcock probably didn't even need a plot, but he crafted one of his best in this story of a daredevil jewel thief, with the retired Grant pinned as the main suspect. Grace Kelly would meet Prince Ranier while making the film and go on to become the Princess of Monaco. This fantastic insert displays light edge and fold wear, a moderate fold separation, some creasing, and pinholes. There are small surface scuffs, as well as unobtrusive stains and smudges. The verso has pieces of masking and cellophane tape, in addition to a few pieces of archival tape bracing the fold separation.


    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
