AUDREY THE GREATEST!

Somehow Audrey Hepburn made fluffy romantic caper movies looklike high art. Take this adorable trifle directed by William Wylerwith Audrey looking glorious in her trademark Givenchy clothing. Audrey could have phone in a performance, but she's totallyenchanting as always, making us overlook the seams in the script. She's beautifully supported by Peter O'Toole, who never lookedhandsomer or more Cary Grant-ish in his life as Simon, the artexpert who gets talked into stealing Audrey's father's statue of theCellini Venus back from the museum when it is learned the statuehas to be authenticated for insurance purposes. Hugh Griffith, as Audrey's father, is a delightful rogue of an artforger and Charles Boyer and Eli Wallach just add to the fun. Theactual theft of the statue is quite ingenious, if a little too drawn out. Still, here's two hours of pure enchantment. That Ferrari still looksgood nearly forty years later, and if Audrey was walking down FifthAvenue, dressed in Givenchy's stunning creations today, she'dcause a riot. Check out that lace cocktail dress with the matchinglace mask at the bar of the Ritz in Paris! It doesn't get any chicerthan this.

Audrey in couture

William Wyler was at the end of his distinguished career when he undertook this project. The film with a screen play by Harry Kurnitz is a film that doesn't break any new grounds, but it's a favorite of a lot of fans, no doubt because of the luminous presence of Audrey Hepburn, a star of such charisma and elegance, unmatched by her peers.Audrey Hepburn is seen in the film through the loving eyes of Mr. Wyler, a director who had worked with the star before. In fact, it was Mr. Wyler who was instrumental in directing Ms. Hepburn in "Roman Holiday", her big break in the American cinema. Audrey Hepburn is seen in the film at her best thanks to Givenchy, a designer that loved her, and whose clothes adorn the star and give the film a touch of chic.Peter O'Toole makes an interesting partner for Ms. Hepburn. As Simon Dermott, Mr. O'Toole is the perfect match for his co-star. Both actors are seen at their most charismatic selves. They seem to be having the time of their lives working for Mr. Wyler and living it up in Paris!The supporting cast is excellent. Hugh Griffith, Charles Boyer, Eli Wallach, Fernand Gravey and Marcel Dalio, and the rest grace the film with their distinguished presence and contribute to the general fun generated by this gentle caper.Thanks to Mr. Wyler and its stars "How to Steal a Million" is a pleasure to watch.

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.

Charming

A charming adventure comedy. It revolves around good-hearted art forgery and the need to set thing right. The basic plot is rather implausible, but it hardly matters. There is a great chemistry between the primary characters and the story is pleasantly devoid of attributes that would prevent the film from being enjoyed by anybody from 10 years-old and up. The blend of mild suspense, gentle comedy and a bit of romance is not too intellectually provocative, but it makes for great fun. It's a film I can sit down an watch with my teenage daughter, my younger son, my wife and my mother, and everybody has a good time and comes away feeling better than when they sat down.
