On Netflix in May: To Catch a Thief

One of my all-time favorite movies is on Netflix this month:  To Catch a Thief.
Classic Alfred Hitchcock starring Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.  It was shot in wide screen (Vista Vision, I think) and has been digitally remastered.  It looks gorgeous on my television.  

Wearing costumes by Edith Head and makeup by Wally Westmore, Grace Kelly is stunning.  Cary Grant is fabulous -- both at the height their careers.

If you are familiar with Alfred Hitchcock's work, you'll already know that he appears as an extra in every film he ever made.  I'll simply tell you he appears early on -- I don't want to spoil it for you.

If you enjoy this film, I'd recommend Rear Window (James Stewart and Grace Kelly) and North by Northwest (Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint).
