"To Catch a Thief" (1955) Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Presented by Terry Meehan

By the middle of the 1950s, Alfred Hitchcock had established himself as one of the world’s foremost filmmakers. As he began the second half of the decade, he decided to add the new medium of television to his list of accomplishments. Terry Meehan’s new series, Hitchcock in the Fifties, Part 2, follows the Master of Suspense as he continues his incredibly creative journey through the decade. We begin with a romantic thriller that features two of his favorite leading actors, Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. John Robie (Grant) is a retired jewel thief and Frances Stevens (Kelly) is a tourist on the Riviera who likes to accessorize with big-ticket baubles. Meehan will introduce each film with an original video presentation, followed by audience reaction and a lively discussion.
