Bright, Sophisticated, Funny!

This Movie was one of the best Audrey made - not an easy statement to make since she made so many great ones. "How to steal a million" is not as well known as her early works (Roman Holiday for example) or as well regarded as Breakfast at Tiffany's (Considered her Signature role), but it is far and away her best comedic work.The casting for the movie was very good. from the principals down to the supporting cast. Notice especially the casting of Hugh Griffith as Charles Bonnet in the role of Audrey's (Nicole's) errant but very endearing Papa, The interplay of those two Characters together with her scenes with Peter O'Toole as Simon Dermott (Society Burglar / Private Investigator / Love Interest) secured, to my mind at any rate, the movie's success. In addition, notice also the performances of Jacques Marin and Moustache as the museum security guards. Both of these turned in terrific work in supporting roles as did Charles Boyer in his (all too brief) appearance as the art Dealer DeSolnay. The sole weak point was I believe the casting of Eli Walach for the character of Davis Leland. Though his performance was adequate, he was not the best choice for this character (a role that was originally intended for George C. Scott). In Summary: The casting was wonderful, The characters were believable, Principals were excellent together and the dialog was bright,sophisticated and (did I mention?) FUNNY! Conclusion: This is one my favorite movies. I have watched it repeatedly over the years and it never fails to makes me laugh. So, If you like to laugh and especially if you're a fan of either Audrey or Peter then this movie is a "must-have". I rate it 10 out of 10.

AUDREY THE GREATEST!


Somehow Audrey Hepburn made fluffy romantic caper movies look

like high art. Take this adorable trifle directed by William Wyler

with Audrey looking glorious in her trademark Givenchy clothing.

Audrey could have phone in a performance, but she's totally

enchanting as always, making us overlook the seams in the script.

She's beautifully supported by Peter O'Toole, who never looked

handsomer or more Cary Grant-ish in his life as Simon, the art

expert who gets talked into stealing Audrey's father's statue of the

Cellini Venus back from the museum when it is learned the statue

has to be authenticated for insurance purposes.

Hugh Griffith, as Audrey's father, is a delightful rogue of an art

forger and Charles Boyer and Eli Wallach just add to the fun. The

actual theft of the statue is quite ingenious, if a little too drawn out.

Still, here's two hours of pure enchantment. That Ferrari still looks

good nearly forty years later, and if Audrey was walking down Fifth

Avenue, dressed in Givenchy's stunning creations today, she'd

cause a riot. Check out that lace cocktail dress with the matching

lace mask at the bar of the Ritz in Paris! It doesn't get any chicer

than this.
