Starring Audrey Hepburn, Peter O’Toole, Hugh Griffith, Charles Boyer, Eli Wallach, Moustache
Light. Charming. Exciting.
Effortless, light-hearted caper movie starring Hepburn as the daughter of a master art forger. A technical examination looming over a fake Cellini statue her father donated to a museum threatens to expose the whole operation, so, being the good daughter, she enlists a handsome burglar (O’Toole) to help her steal the statue. The surrounding elements-the music, the color, the expensive outfits, supporting cast- are uniformly fantastic, but these kinds of films come down to the stars, and Hepburn and O’Toole are wonderful.
