How to Steal a Million

During the 1960's, there were a number of light comedies released. Most of them were just silly, but several were clever.

Take for example How to Steal a Million. Starring Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole, this crime caper comedy is smart and funny. Hepburn enlists O'Toole to help her steal a forged Cellini sculpture in order to avoid an authenticity test.

Hepburn, of course, oozes elegance and style. She is honestly one of the most glamorous leading ladies I have watched. She also has excellent comedic timing, as also shown in Charade.

I already knew that O'Toole has a sense of humor after watching The Ruling Class. Like Hepburn, he too oozes elegance and style. Oh, and to appease the masses, he is gorgeous. *sigh* Those eyes...

To sum things up, I was very entertained by How to Steal a Million. It's almost like a follow-up to Charade although it's not as great as Charade. Anyway, it's a very cute movie.

My Rating: ****


  1. One of my favorite "light" comedies of the era (but it stays with you, so maybe better than they think). Audrey's wardrobe is amazing and yes - O'Toole is to die for. And all set in Paris. A real treat and the kind they truly don't know how to make any more!

  2. I love this one even more than Charade.

    And it's not for the first time when you review a film that I am going to write a post about soon... :)
