DescriptionTo Catch a Thief (Paramount, 1955). Half Sheet (22" X 28") Style A.
The sun-dappled, azure waters of the French Riviera provide a spectacular backdrop for this Alfred Hitchcock film, which won an Academy Award for cinematographer Robert Burks. As elite vacationers bask in the glitz and tranquility of a posh seaside resort town, a crime wave ensues that points directly to retired cat burglar Cary Grant. He claims innocence, and vows to unmask the true criminal mimicking his style. Now he must keep tabs on the wealthiest of the holidayers, including the sufficiently snarly Jessie Royce Landis and her lovely daughter, played by Grace Kelly. Light partial touchup has been applied to edge wear, creases, mild tears, surface scuffs, and a few scratches. Some of these issues are still visible, and a few of the tears extend into the image area. There is also unaddressed smudging, a faint dust shadow along the left edge, and the poster displays some color fading. Fine+ on Linen.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
