Former Occupation: Cat Burglar

 Rich American girl(Grace Kelly)travels to Europe in search of a man. To say more might tip you as to whether she is what you suspect her to be—the jewel thief whom Cary Grant is stalking through the lush gambling-rooms and gilded chambers of French Riviera villas, casinos and hotels.

It’s significant that the opening credits of this minor, but glossily enjoyable,Hitchcock thriller, are superimposed over a travel agent’s window. A large part of the film’s charm is its showcasing of the beautiful towns and villages along France’s (and Monaco’s) Riviera coast.
