It’s my opinion that Films at the Frist is one of the most consistently good film series’ in Nashville. The Frist does a great job at picking fun and classic films that people actually want to see that coincides with their different exhibits.
To Catch a Thief is a classic Hitchcock film that stars two of the greatest stars of their era: Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. In this movie Cary Grant plays a retired cat burglar with the not-so-creative handle “The Cat.” Unfortunately for him, someone starts robbing people in a style very similar to his, so the cops think that he’s back to his old ways. They come to arrest him but he gives them the slip and tries to prove his innocence. Somewhere along the lines he picks up Grace Kelly.
If you know anything about Grace Kelly then you’re not wondering why this film was picked. Her wardrobe in this movie is apparently completely fantastic, so it fits in perfectly with the Frist’s current major exhibit, The Golden Age of Couture. This film will be shown Friday September 10th at 7pm at the Frist.
Let me recap for you: Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, Hitchcock, pretty dresses. For free. Touchdown. What? Yes. Rock’n’roll.
