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.
An on-off romance is thwarted by multiple obstacles. Splendid and still-influential escapist romance, full of exotic locations and playboy lifestyles. Glorious if you’re in the mood.
A New York advertising executive is forced to go on the run. Sparkling mistaken-identity comedy-thriller, with both director and star at the height of their powers. Effortlessly entertaining, and supremely modernist in its design.
