To Catch a Thief (1955, dir. Alfred Hitchcock)

A former jewel thief comes out of retirement when his Riviera lifestyle is threatened by a pretender. Glossy and deft romantic comedy with a few knowing touches, with a lighter touch than typical from its director, some still-impressive optical effects sequences aside. Happy to serve the daft conceit, the cast and crew relax and enjoy themselves.
