Movie of the Week - How to Steal a Million

This week’s movie is How to Steal a Million (1966).

The film is a romantic comedy about a woman who must steal a forged statue from a highly guarded Paris museum, and the man who helps her. What makes this movie so great is its credits: directed by William Wyler, music by John Williams, cinematography by Charles Lang, and best of all starring Audrey Hepburn and Peter O’Toole. The film does play a bit old-fashion, but it is quite charming and a lot of fun. It is the only film in which O’Toole and Hepburn star together, and thus is a must see for fans of either. Like Charade, the film is set in Paris, and there are many recognizable sites and locations (including one of my personal favorites place Vendome). The film stars: Audrey Hepburn, Peter O’Toole, Eli Wallach, Hugh Briffith, Charles Boyer, and Jacques Marin.
