How to Steal a Million
I just watched How to Steal a Million with Audrey Hepburn. This is one of those movies that I always see and can’t remember if I’ve watched it or not. It’s certainly not on the level of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or even “Charade”. However, it’s just charming. Audrey could make a movie about something ordinary like term life insurance quotes charming. It’s charming in the ways that movies aren’t charming now. I love that they advertise that she’s wearing a Hubert Givenchy wardrobe in the trailers. “Watch it for the clothes” It’s one of those movies that’s easy to enjoy and probably every caper movie since then has ripped off in some way or the other. It seems like it’s going to be predictable but there’s a lot of plot twists and turns that really make it something else.
